Thank you, James the Aussie, for this comment:
Riddle me this:
Then how do you get his blessing to give up Tyson Chandler and Alexis Ajinca, leaving him decimated at center so Jordan can save a buck?
I don't know. They've got to be looking at trading Dampier for a PG or a C, and if they can't they'll just buy him out and take the savings.
