Drury has a NMC. Can't be bought out
Waiving Redden in 2010 may be an option if the cap goes down, as you say, but still unlikely IMO. And it definitely won't happen this year.
Regarding Drury, his NMC has no affect whatsoever on being bought out:
11.8 Individually Negotiated Limitations on Player Movement.
(b) A no-move clause may prevent the involuntary relocation of a Player, whether by Trade, Loan or Waiver claim.
A no-move clause, however, may not restrict the Club's buy-out and termination rights as set forth in this Agreement.
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.
