There were only certain times when you could even use the good ol' regular buyouts, though... the two weeks before July 1st and then later if you had an arbitration settlement. Both of those windows came and went before the last CBA expired. There probably isn't any reopening at all, even of the old fashioned buyout type, prior to this new season.

(And there needn't be, teams are being allowed to go ahead at the $70.2M cap max that was there at the end of last season, so they ought to have planned their rosters and executed their old-fashioned buyouts last summer based on that).
