We have the first victim of the amnesty provision in the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. The Blazers get rid of Derek Anderson.

    Originally posted by NBA.com

    The Portland Trail Blazers announced today that the club has waived Guard Derek Anderson. Anderson will be designated as the teamís amnesty player under the luxury tax amnesty provision of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

    The provision allows a team to release a player and remove his contract amount from the teamís salary cap for purposes of calculating the luxury tax. The Trail Blazers will be responsible for the remaining two years of Andersonís contract and he is free to sign with another team.

    ...

    During the 2004-2005 season Anderson saw action in only eight of the teamís final 42 games due to various injuries, including a sinus ailment, dental problems and back spasms. An eight-year NBA veteran, he played in 47 games with 32 starts for the Trail Blazers last season and averaged 9.2 points, 2.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 26.4 minutes per game. In the 2003-2004 season Anderson appeared in 51 games, 45 in the starting line up. He averaged 13.6 points, 4.5 assists, 3.6 rebounds, 1.29 steals and 35.5 minutes. He had limited action that season due to a herniated disk.



Anyone interested in a somewhat injury-prone 6'5" guard who can play the point?

In other Blazer news, they got rid of Nick Van Exel.

    The Allan Houston Rule
How embarassing is that to have the "We get to dump a worthless overpaid player, WHOOPEE~!" rule named after you? Damn.

Meanwhile, please believe Brian Grant is next on the list.

I assume by victim you're talking about the Blazers organization, because being paid to not work, plus with the chance to sign with another team is a sweet deal.

Looks like Mr. Jackie Christie is next.

    Making use of the newly installed amnesty clause, league sources in New York confirmed that the Orlando Magic would waive the disgruntled Doug Christie.

    Although Christie would still be paid the $8.2 million that he is owed for the upcoming season, waiving him using the amnesty clause would save the Magic just as much in luxury tax payments.

    This ends Doug Christie's tumultuous stay in Orlando after being acquired in a trade with Sacramento for Cuttino Mobley.



Any chance of Jackie and her husband going back to Sacto?

You have an unhealthy fixation with Jackie...kinda like Doug!

This may just be my own crazy opinions from what I've seen watching him, but I have to wonder whether Doug would be able to muster up the emotional energy to "forgive" Sacramento for trading him.

Also, I can't see it happening without us first losing BOTH Songaila and Evans...unfortunately, that could be very likely.

There you go. The Lakers save $30M on the luxury tax by cutting him. I think he might be headed back to Portland - they apparently loved him up there even though his knees are just gone.

THANK GOODNESS! It's just too bad we still have to pay him at all.

Deep philosophical question: If the Knicks don't cut Allan Houston, can the rule still be called the Allan Houston Rule?

I thought the same thing, RSN. And according to realgm, it looks like the Knicks might not cut him after all.

Oh, well, that makes more sense. Better deal for them if he retires anyways. Two years earlier and it mighta been the Terrell Brandon Rule.

Yeah, it's a done deal, Houston is staying and Zeke hopes he retires.

Here's more to add to the list:

Aaron McKie - 76ers
Eddie Robinson - Bulls
Jerome Williams - Knicks
Alonzo Mourning's buyout - Raptors
Ron Mercer - Nets

EDIT:

Add Reggie Miller's contract to the list.

The Bucks have someone to add to this list. I must confess that I had to look for his name. Since I found it and returned here, I have forgotten who it was.

Calvin Booth - does that ring a bell?

"Booth has averaged 4.1 points and 3.3 rebounds in 250 career games in six NBA seasons" (From another yahoo page)
And he is due $13 million over the next 2 seasons.

Just the status of the players that have been "Houstoned" (that's a misnomer now, I know):

- Derek Anderson to Houston.
- Brian Grant to Phoenix.
- Aaron McKie to the Lakers.
- Doug Christie to Dallas.
- Reggie Miller to TNT.
- Jerome Williams retires and will work in the Knick organization.
