Nope - as long as he was given prior notice that he was being waived for the purpose of being bought out, he can't object to being put on waivers ... and so he has no recourse if someone else [inexplicably] claims him.

Actually, in this situation the NMC won't stop the buyout, but the player has the option of whether they want to placed on waivers or not before being bought out.

Prior to exercising its Ordinary Course Buy-Out rights pursuant to Paragraph 13 of the SPC hereof, the Club shall, in writing in accordance with the notice provisions in Exhibit 3 hereof, provide the Player with the option of electing to be placed on Waivers. The Player will have twenty-four (24) hours from the time he receives such notice to accept or reject that option at his sole discretion, and shall so inform the Club in writing, in accordance with the notice provisions in Exhibit 3 hereof, within such twenty-four (24) hour period. If the Player does not timely accept or reject that option, it will be deemed rejected.
