And unlike Redden, Drury's buyout would not be a big deal as he would only be on the books for 1 extra year at 1.67 mil.
That's not entirely correct. Next year his buyout, as has been repeatedly demonstrated, will be :
CHRIS DRURY BUYOUT FROM CAPGEEK.COM
That means to sign Richards, at his current salary, you will need approx 11.5 million cap dollars next year. So Richards and Drury will eat almost
of our salary cap next season.
Don't make me repeat all the other factors we'll have to deal with this coming offseason in terms of young guys getting bigger contracts, too.
