It sucks for you.
I don't really see much sense in cutting either Calderon or Bargs. Kleiza at 4.5 mil isn't worth the amnesty, and he's probably worth the money anyway.

It's a little better if you can save it for 2 years, and it seems you can.

But for it to be really great -- make it so you can trade for a player and amnesty him.
I assume they'll prevent that -- or maybe not.
Imagine what Orlando would give for you to take Turkoglu and amnesty?
Picks, Redick, pretty much anything that's not Dwight Howard or Jameer Nelson I guess.
That would be awesome.
They clearly need to lose both Arenas and Turk, and 1 amnesty doesn't cut it.
You need assets.

Although maybe your owners wouldn't want to spend money like that.
