Regardless, that's a massive amount of money and I can't see him being bought out because of that.
He's definitely being bought out by the end of the amnesty period next offseason, so they'll be paying him to play for another team next year or in the 2014 season. There's zero chance he plays out the length of the term. Oh God, can you imagine?
