    Here's what Larry Coon has to say in regards to buyouts in general-

    What is a contract buyout?

    Sometimes players and teams decide to divorce each other. They do this by mutually agreeing that:

    • The team will waive the player
    • If the player clears waivers, the player's guaranteed salary will be reduced or eliminated (see question number 62)
    • In contracts signed or extended under the previous CBA, the payment schedule for the remaining salary may be shortened or lengthened (see question number 63)
    • Optionally the team's set-off rights (see question number 64) may be waived

    After the player clears waivers, he and his former team are free to go their separate ways. There is a quid-pro-quo between the player and team regarding contractual obligation and salary -- in exchange for gaining his freedom, the player agrees to give the team a break on the remaining salary he is owed. 

    How do buyouts affect team salary?

     Any guaranteed salary still owed to the player as the result of a buyout continues to be included in team salary, just as with any waived player.

    Not 3.1 million more whatever we end up paying him will go against our cap. I am hoping he settles for around a million but not sure that will happen.

    Yeah, you don't talk about a buyout with a player that could be a trade piece. His contract would make teams shy away from deals.

    Not really sure why we're calling him an idiot.... but he's definitely not even a role player. Maybe he can get a contract with a Euro or Chinese team.

    And this from Joe Freeman-
      gain difference between salary and buyout. So $3.1 mil-buyout=cap space. RT does that mean we gain that in cap space?

    If this doesn't help our cap space, please don't get this scrub in our team. That is all.

    Strategically speaking, I'm not sure what took so long.  Talent (or lack of) aside, the young man doesn't exactly fit the culture here...and/or our new direction
