Of the two, Bargs is the one who possesses more of a unique set of skills, even if he has not been that consistent to far in putting them on display. Hence - Amir. Nothing to do with him as a player or with his contract, as a matter of fact - circumstance.
You're not going after a max player by amnestying Amir's 5.5Mil. We'd have to dump more salary. Amnestying Amir gives us what 16-17Mil in capspace? Not bad especially if we draft a big anyway.

Edit: Ha, didn't read the rest of the posts. Lol
