Which is what I'm sure they're targeting.
I imagine if they bring back a guy who's making 9-13 million (a borderline All-Star SF) then Artest gets the amnesty ax. If they bring in a bunch of guys and none of them make much, that might be Artest's only shot to stay with the team.
He's still a great one-on-one defender, but at it's just about lost it's value when you have to also accept his absolutely ridiculous offensive blunders.
