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 20% 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.
Lol. I know the numbers. I can use capgeek too. And I know all the other factors as well, so you needn't worry about repeating them.

I said that he would "be on the books for 1 extra year at 1.67 mil". That one extra year being the 2012-2013 season. Buying him out is not a big deal like it would be with Redden (who would be on the books for 6 more years rather than 3).

And I also said that IF we are going after Richards in the offseason, then we MAY need to buyout Drury to fit him in. I can't understand what you found in my post that was so disagreeable.
