Lets not pretend we're stuck here. We're as stuck as Toronto is likely to make the playoffs.
1. No team in the league has traded for an overpaid player to meet the cap floor. (its fictitious).

2. LTIR still doesn't remove his cap-hit - especially when it counts to the cap in the offseason when you are trying to sign high dollar UFA's.

3. Buyout is not exactly a good option.

4. Drury won't retire and squander 5+ million dollars.

Really the only option on the table is Drury playing out his contract.
