Sounds like the buyouts are *only* for the next off-season anyway, which makes sense - if they're allowing teams to spend to $70.2M effectively for this year, there was never a need for any immediate buyout allowance. The "compliance" issue is only for the lowered cap next year. So all the buyouts come in the summer. So we basically all just sit and re-evaluate after the players play out this year, it will obviously have an effect on who the real buyout candidates are. Some new ones will undoubtedly emerge once the half-season is done. Some (like Gomez) will be obvious no matter how they perform this season.
