I can't see him sticking around for that.
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.
I agree that Richards has to be bought out at some point because he's only making a million his final 3 years, why play? The point was more or less about how every young kid gets all kinds of chances to succeed to fans, and the more established players are run. You can't talk about having chemistry and then running guys out right away either.
