Raptors Amnesty

I'm looking at Colangelo's decision to not use amnesty this summer and wondering if his big plan is to maybe let Calderon expire next summer (10mil off the books), then use that amnesty provision on say Amir (6.5Mil off the books) which i believe would put us around 44Mil dollars commited to 10 players (i'm including the QO for Derozan @ 4.5mil and assuming Kleiza and Gray pick up their options).

Is there a timeline on when you can use the amnesty claws or can you wait as long a you want as long as the player you use it on was signed prior to the new CBA? Between Calderon's expiring, Amnesty, and even Kleiza's contract which becomes an expiring next summer we certainly have options going into next summer. This is partly why i honestly believe we'll let Jose expire unless a great deal can be made in the next 3-4 months that makes sense (either a deal that gives us a great top 7 rotation player.... starting SF?, or a deal that doesn't add much money long term). I think we're positioned pretty well to do something special next summer which makes you wonder who Colangelo plans on going after.

Amnesty is usable any time over the course of this CBA.

The QO doesn't work that way. Only if DD were to sign it would it be our cap hit (and that of course will not happen). Otherwise, his cap hold is around 8.5M, so it is either 8.5M if we extend the QO or the amount he signs for, depending on whether he's signed or not. Or he could be extended, in which case obviously his contract amount is the cap hit.

Colangelo needs to do some heavy lifting through trades.

Why amnesty a contributing member to the team with a huge expiring contract?

i'm not a big fan of amnesty.

especially on amir.
seriously, with the work is a done just in this presaison, wht would you want him gone like that.
as our 3rd big men, he is fine. more than fine honestly.

use it on Calderon would have been a mistake (even if i wanted it tis summer).
he is a trade chip for the deadline.

trade chip also is kleiza, so, i don't see on whom you want in the futur utilize the amnesty.

Actually I'm a fan of amnesty Kleiza. I don't like what Raptors GM did for the roster regarding SF position. Was there really any need to have 3-4 equal SF ?
I want to see Kleiza playing, even if it's in Europe where he scores 20+ on a daily basis and leads his team to finals rather than being killed on a bench here in Toronto.
Drafting Ross was terrrible move. Didn't draft Drummond, because of JV, but somehow draft TR when there was DD on the team already.
