Will the Kings use the amnesty?

One of the challenges that the next general manager of the Sacramento Kings will have is figuring out which, if any players, the team will use the amnesty clause on over the offseason.
John Salmons (signed for 2013-14, team option in 2014-15), Chuck Hayes (signed through 2014-15), Jason Thompson (signed through 2016-17) and even Marcus Thornton (signed through 2014-15) -- due to the nearly $17 million he's owed -- are all possibilities. So which, if any, make the most sense for a Kings franchise that will enter next season with a completely overhauled front office, coaching staff and ownership group?
