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.
My gut feeling is that they give it another year with DP in Bridgeport, then buy out if all things stay the same, but I think they can reach the floor either way. Bailey and Hamonic deals + a UFA or two or trade should do it.
