As much as I liked the spark Kleiza occasionally provided off the bench, I think it might be a good use of the amnesty clause for the Raptors to take him off the books. The only other guy who really would be an amnesty consideration would be Amir, and he at least has value as a 4/5 off the bench who can do a little bit of everything.

And if Houston chooses not to hang onto him, I'd love the Raptors to take a stab at getting Chase Budinger to be a backup SF. He's got good athleticism and offensive skills. The knock on him is that he doesn't compete hard enough defensively to be a difference maker. I think that Coach Casey could probably give him a good, swift kick in the ass to make him into a competent defender to give some more flexibility to when they use James Johnson.
