I know I'm the one asking the question here, but looking at the CBA, I don't see where it says that waivers need to be cleared before the end of the buyout window, only that he needs to be offered on waivers before then. It sounds like the notice of termination (which has to come after or just before waivers) is what is subject to the deadline.
Adding on, there is precedent of a player being bought out after being put on waivers June 30th...
The deadline isn't for the buyout agreement, the deadline is for the notice of termination which has to either come after or simultaneously with waivers.
