Sir, you are not keeping up with the news.

They are going to allow buy outs this week in order to stop what was about to happen to Redden and Gomez (being told to stay home all year). To make it fair, all teams will be allowed to buy out now, and next off season.

Also, just to be clear, I would not actually suggest buying out Handzus. He only has one year left anyway.
