They didn't pick up Thomas to reach the floor, they were already at it. They picked him up to artificially lower the cap floor in case they wanted to move Streit/Vis. A compliance buyout pays 100% of the players salary with $0 against their cap; That just doesn't seem very Wang-like. Acquiring a player that counts against their cap but that they don't have to pay any money, does seem Wang-like.

I suppose if they did it, it would be a very big gesture towards their fans that they are willing to start spending money...
