Just my $.02:

1) If he's buried in the minors, he collects his $4.5M, and Wang gets credit for $3.6M of that against the salary cap.
2) If he's bought out (not with an amnesty buy-out), RDP collects approximately $1.5M per year for the next 18 years (2031!) and Wang gets credit for that against the cap. This actually saves Wang about $13.5M over the remaining term of the contract (and more if you consider the NPV of delaying the payment stream).

While I feel for RPD, because his luck with injuries was attrocious, collecting $1.5M per year for the next almost 20 years is a pretty nice "golden parachute"!
