These are the primary mistakes people keep making with regard to buyout talk:

1) A focus on capspace rather than salary. We're not a cap team, and likely won't be for some years.

2) Some forget that you still have to pay a player about 2/3 if you buy him out. So a player has to be much worse than just overpaid, he has to be worth less than 1/3 of his salary. Those are rare situations, a player has to be as bad as Gomez or Commodore to merit it.
