Using the amnesty on RJ now (as opposed to next year) has to make roster sense, because it doesn't make financial sense since we have to replace him with another player PLUS pay his contract.

So you go from paying $72 mil to $63 mil cap-wise, but you're still actually paying the $72 mil plus the MLE, which is basically the same as paying the $72mil plus luxury tax.

So when it came out they were going to use the amnesty on RJ, I assumed that meant they WOULD use it when a legit 3 agreed to come here under MLE terms.
