I guess it would be likely to see Gordon or Charlie V used in the amnesty, so maybe they could stomach giving Bargnani a shot.

The Pistons have three main candidates for amnesty.

Onetime Pistons hero Rip Hamilton is on the books for roughly $19 million over the next two seasons. Ben Gordon hasn't lived up to expectations since signing in 2009 and is owed nearly $35 million over the next three seasons.

And then there's Charlie Villanueva, under contract for nearly $23 million over the next three seasons.

But there's something else to consider. I asked a Pistons official during the summer: "Who would get the ax if the amnesty provision is approved?"

He responded: "It depends on who you can trade."
