There's no reason to expect the league to change buyout rules, and a bought out player cannot be re-signed by the team buying them out.
Allowing that would be a total joke honestly. It would technically be collusion. You make a side deal with the player to give him 2/3rds of his current contract then sign him to a smaller cap hit so he still gets all or most of his money and you save a ton of cap space.
