But, are those buyouts allowed if the team is already under the cap? Can they be used to get rid of bad contracts? Or are they only allowed to be used by teams that are affected negatively by the new cap number?
- Each team will be allowed two amnesty buyouts that can be used to terminate contracts after this season and next season. The buyouts will count against the players' overall share in revenues, but not the team's salary cap.
Signature: There is no greater demonstration of Fan patience then to suggest to "Play the Kids " and be willing to accept the consequences of those actions..
