<b>Bucks Waive Calvin Booth</b>

15th August, 2005 - 4:28 pm

NBA.com - The Milwaukee Bucks have requested waivers on center Calvin Booth, General Manager Larry Harris announced today. Booth will be designated as the team’s amnesty player as allowed under the new collective bargaining agreement.

The amnesty provision allows a team to release a player and remove his contract amount from the team’s salary cap for purposes of calculating the luxury tax. The Bucks will be responsible for the remaining years of Booth’s contract and he is free to sign with another team.

Oops, my bad. Overlooked Booth on your list. Probably won't be too many more except for Finley of course.

Houston will drop someone (Spoon, Baker, Norris)
Phoenix will drop Eisley's salary.

Anybody else????

Edited to add: Heat just waived Person's contract.

There were many teams that didn't use the "waive".

Do they hold this one time "waive" for next year or many years until they use it?

Is it a tradeable asset like an MLE LLE or trade exception or draft pick?

No. The opportunity to use the one time waive expired last night at midnight EST. It will not be offered again in this CBA.
