In today’s NBA and under the current Collective Bargaining Agreement, teams are forced to make financial decisions over basketball ones. Over the past several days there have been front offices that have decided to use their amnesty provision in order to save cap space moving forward.
The Los Angeles Lakers have already used their clause on Metta World Peace, the Miami Heat have recently cut Mike Miller and Pro Basketball Talk writes that the Milwaukee Bucks have chosen to part ways with Drew Gooden.
The Milwaukee Bucks have waived Gooden using the league’s amnesty provision, the team announced Tuesday afternoon, five hours before the midnight deadline to use it this season.
Milwaukee has been trying to move Gooden for some time now, but it was unable to find the right trade during the season. However, the two sides have finally been separated, but it will not take long before Gooden joins a roster for some added front court depth.
Gooden has two-year and $13.4 million left on his deal.
