Keeping him and expecting Richards to recapture his glory from the TB and Dallas days is foolish when the player hasn't shown any glimpse of being that player on a consistent basis. Richards isn't going to get better with age. Everyone expected some decline during the nine year contract but not in the 2nd year. The Garden isn't worried about an amnesty buyout.
Zero let me repeat zero chance Richards gets bought out, this is Sather he is a great horse trader and Ricards has value.

Ok what I would do with Richards is trade him this year or next to a team looking for cap.

Phoenix or Nashville would be good choices.

Though some cash into the deal to facilitate a buy out at 35-36 if Richards wants to retire early

A win win for everyone

The last 3years of Richard's are at 1 mil per with a cap hit over 6mil that is value
for a low cap team.
