Not seeing it.
The players could argue that the team is in breach of their contract by not allowing them to play, the team can then concede breach and suggest a remedy that the player walk awy from the remaining terms.
If the players has a problem with the direction the team is going, they have their rights to walk away from the situation.
The players and the PA would have a legit grievance if the team told them to stay home and then wouldn't let them out of their contracts if that was the choice the players made.
If the player is harmed, they have remedies available to them.
Forcing the team to play them at any level is not one of them.
This early buyout is more of a courtesy than anything. These guys are getting bought out no matter what, why embarrass the players by making them wait?
It has nothing to do with potential greivances.
