The Portland Trail Blazers will not use the amnesty clause on All-Star guard Brandon Roy.
Blazers team president told the Oregonian late Monday that "we expect Brandon to be a part of this team when the season starts."
Roy, who has $63 million remaining on his contract, has had multiple operations that have left him without cartilage in both knees.
A three-time All-Star, Roy was limited by knee problems that required surgery last season. He played shortened minutes and averaged 12.2 points and 2.7 assists in 27.9 minutes, the lowest totals of his five-year career
The amnesty clause would allow teams to cut one player without having his salary count against the team's cap. In Roy's case, using the amnesty clause on him would save the team from paying $15 million in luxury tax.
