By that time those funds would be a roster spot at league minimum. The buy out cap penalty is/was 2/3's of the remaining $ on the deal per season. That is unless I am missing somethign that changed in the new CBA........
The actual $ amount of the buy-out would be 2/3 of the actual salary. The cap hit is calculated as the difference between the buy-out savings and the would-be salary for those years. The cap-hit would be:
2017-18 $6,000,000
2018-19 $6,000,000
2019-20 $6,000,000
2020-21 $333,333
2021-22 $333,333
2022-23 $333,333
