We would split the buyout with Dallas, so it would be less, but what it comes down to for me is the following:
1) Can you replace Avery with $1.3m? Possibly, but not a guarantee. Is it worth a $700k cap hit in 2012-2013 to try? Probably not.
2) Can you replace Drury with $3.3m? Absolutely. Is it worth a $1,666,667 cap hit in 2012-2013 to try? I say yes.
3) Can you replace Wolski with $3.2m? Almost certainly. Is it worth a $666,667 cap hit in 2012-2013 to try? I say yes, again.
Therefore, Drury and Wolski get bought out, Avery comes back for his final year.
