Unless they give teams a window to buy them out with that clause prior to the season, they won't have a buyout option. Chances of an amnesty buyout are slim as it is anyway.
Well, the CBJs aren't exactly in cap trouble. I'm pretty sure the GM and owners would rather sell Nash for more and deal with Mason on their own, then sell Nash for less just to get rid of Mason. Negative value only makes sense if he had a really long contract. His contract ends after the next season, so it really isn't a big deal.
