But there's breaking down and then there's Drury. If he was putting up 40+ points (something I can easily see Richards do as an older player) then I don't think it's far fetched to imagine that teams near the cap floor would be ok taking on his $5m salary.

Provide there isn't a full NMC (damn you Slats!) of course
