The Timberwolves have put center Darko Milicic on waivers, designating him as the team’s amnesty player. The one-time amnesty clause allows a team to waive a player and not have his salary count against the cap or luxury tax. The move will reportedly help the Wolves free up space to land players like Portland restricted free agent Nicolas Batum, who Minnesota signed to an offer sheet today. The Trail Blazers now have 72 hours to match Minnesota's offer.
