If they buyout Dipietro:

Wang will need to pay $68MM next year, but the cap would be $39.5MM next year, so they'd have to spend another $4.5MM (MINIMUM) on PLAYERS just to get back to the floor again next year.

So Wang can either spend $44MM next year and include DP's $4.5MM
OR
He can pay $72.5MM (cash outflow) for achieving the same cap floor of $44MM.

Just can't see it happening.

If he sells the team, DP becomes someone else's problem.
Wait- are saying that it's a lump sum? I don't think it is.
