The Timberwolves announced center Darko Milicic was waived, designating him as the team’s amnesty player.
The amnesty provision should save the Wolves roughly $7 million against the 2012-13 salary cap and clear enough space to sign a wing player. The Wolves are interested in Blazers swingman Nicolas Batum, a restricted free agent.
The amnesty provision allows a team to waive one player and not have his salary count against the salary cap or luxury tax.
Milicic spent parts of three seasons as the Timberwolves’ starting center, averaging 7.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.6 blocks over 122 games and 110 starts with the Wolves.
