Interesting article from Kawakami regarding the one player amnestry it's likely each team will get. I personally would let Biedrins go.

Yea, i would have beans... i like Lee... he is overpaid, but he is still a quality starter material.

Lee showed a lot of improvement late last season ...
He'd look even better next to a legitimate Center. Drop Biedrins.

I think the best option would be to wait to next year when there would probably be more free agents.
I am not too happy with beans, he hasn' really participated in any of the lockout events with the team... yeah he has a new born, but he just doesn't seem interested in the game.
I think if we loose the whole season, next year we can use the amnesty and shed beans, and also Lou and Bell come off the books. We would have enough to signe a good Center.
Howard, M. Gasol, or Nene is a possibility. Also Tyson Chandler, Jordan, Oden, the lopez twins, McGee...
heck we could pickup two centers. Pickup Brook Lopez and twin Robin Lopez as a backup... not the most eliete, but that would be solid, and would give us a chance to compete. That is if Howard decides to stay in Orlando, or the Nets convince him to go to Brooklyn with Williams. NY will probably try to pickup CP3. We would have the advantage of having a PG, SG, SF and PF in place while most other teams will be scrambling to fill those spots.
Here is the link to the 2011 and 2012 free agents:
There are a lot of centers in there... not many eliete, but there aren't many eliete centers in the league.
List of centers that would be availalbe if entire season is lost:

Interesting player that will garner some interest.
Thaddeus Young - F - 76ers
Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated hears that the Sixers are "very nervous" about another team offering large contract to restricted free agent Thaddeus Young.
The Sixers want to re-sign Young and the forward has already said that he wants to remain in with the team, but it's possible another franchise presents him with an offer he can't refuse. Philadelphia would have the right to match any offer, but as the roster currently stands, the Sixers don't have much financial flexibility to accommodate a lucrative contract. His fantasy value will be directly tied to where he signs.

The Warriors would be interested in signing Brandon Roy if he is waived by the Blazers, according to sources.
Roy’s former agent, Bob Myers, is now the assistant GM for the Warriors. Roy would also prefer to stay on the West Coast.
Golden State would prefer to sign a big man, but Roy makes sense for them to add depth as a playmaker.
The Oregonian reported on Monday that the Blazers intend to use their amnesty clause on Roy immediately.

If we could sign him for relatively cheap this could be a great pickup. Would rather use money on adding a big man first.
But if we had Roy start and play some limited minutes and have Monta come off the bench to be a gunner. Watch out. Stay won't be able to rebound or defend though
Get Money. Get Paid.

IMO, this is the worst f*^king idea I've ever seen. Brandon Roy is playing on one leg and that's not ever gonna get better. He could have an inspired performance or two every 20 games or so. We can get that kind of player anywhere and they would have not 1 but 2 knees...
