Can't he clear waivers and become a FA? Isn't that an option?
Yeah it is.... but..... and someone correct me if I'm off here.... I think there is a "progressive" reward for teams at the front of the line to take a player off of the Amnesty Wire. I think, for example, if Charlotte takes him his cost to them would be nearly nothing.... and Toronto would still pay most of his salary..... it wouldn't count against the cap but they would still pay it.
A decent player won't make it very far down I wouldn't think...
