Maybe thats what I'm saying? By being bought out, he gets 3.3 million (over 2 yrs). He loses 1.7m over that time.

I'm saying I find it preetttty hard to believe that he won't get more than .85 m per year as an UFA over the next two years (to cover what he's lost).

He could sign with a "crappy desperate" team, for probably 4m/yr for 3 years or so...if he so chooses. By him going to UFA, he gets his choice of 29 teams, how much money he gets, how long he wants to play there, ect.

There isn't much downside, assuming he can make 1.7 over two years. Its far better than a trade for him.

30/30 teams would pay him .85 per year for 2 years....
