IMO, the one and only reason for buying him out is because his contract has the potential to screw us on the cap recapture penalties. That's why he has to be bought out this year. If it wasn't for that, I'd say keep him and see if he can find his game again, then try to trade him at some point before he falls off a cliff.
Game. Set. Match.

This mentality of "well, hes better than other options," while true, doesnt take the big picture into account at all.
