A buyout is a last resort. We're nowhere near that point with Jones.
I should made it clear that I know it won't actually happen, I just WISH it would.. not that Jones is completely useless, but he is getting paid 2M more than he should be for how he is playing and I don't think he really adds anything we lack to our lineup. Just saying that if money wasn't an issue, I would love to use that 4M elsewhere.
