If they need Ricky's contract to reach the cap floor why would Wang buy him out? The only reason to do it is to be able to stay under the cap which would imply that they spent quite a bit more for next season's roster. I am not hopeful about that. Even if they try to make that a reality for once I don't see how they can assume they can. If they buy him out before the first week of July they will be taking a risk that they can find enough salary to cover the shortfall. It would be far more cautious to keep Ricky one more season, make some moves during that time, then buy him out next year.

And that is assuming Wang would even allow it. Snow may have won the battle to put Rick in Bridgeport, but cutting off all together will really take some work.
