It's called a compliance buyout, and omission doesn't mean there won't be one. You do realize a CBA is 150+ pages long and what we got is a very short resume.
The reason I doubt you've read there won't be any compliance buyouts is because you wouldn't be calling it like that (how CP named it). What you should say is that you have not read anywhere that there will be one.
The reason its called a "compliance" buyout, is so team can "comply" to the new terms and % of the cap. If the cap changes, chances are there will be compliance buyouts, especially if there's no rollbacks.
From what I've read teams will have one year to maintain the previous cap limit of 70 million, and then they won't be protected. It would be highly unwise to not permit this to teams, especially if they can't bury contracts.
