Buying him out certainly DOES save money. 2/3 of his remaining salary over twice the remaining length of the deal. His salary is 3 million.

2/3 X 3 = 2 / (2X 1 year left) = 1 million a year for the next 2 years. A savings of 1.75 million on this years cap. Now, I think this would be a stupid idea. But it certainly does save money.
I thought they need Jones to accept that, if not they have to stick to the contract or pay a full salary.

And Jones is not so bad they'll keep Syvret and let Jones play in the minors for 3 million dollars, sounds crazy
