If they don't want him then we don't let him go and put him on the suspended list for the season for non-compliance to play out the final year of his contract. We shouldn't be bending over backwards to make it work for him. We shouldn't be penalized for the cap or salary hit if he wants to leave. Go and sign overseas but it has to be on our terms, not his.
Whether they pay us or not, his cap hit remains there. I'm not too concerned about it since we aren't losing money, but hey, if they send us a check I'm OK with it.
