8 million dollar expiring contract. Even if he was absolutely useless, that much money off the books will be valuable to someone. He's still an elite level defender, so he's not even useless.
We don't need to amnesty someone that we could get value for.
yes, it will...mostly to the Lakers. And thats not even a "feeling", the numbers say no team is gonna benefit more (financially) than the Lakers from getting rid of his contract.
