I understand what you're saying, but it's not likely at all. Richards knows the following:

A. If he is not bought out today, he will be bought out next year. There's really no debating that, whether the team wins a cup with him next year of flops
B. That he will be getting a fat multi-million dollar check when he is bought out, in addition to his regular salary next year. Not to mention all the money Richards has accrued over his career. He doesn't have to worry about "playing for a contract"

Having already won a cup, the only thing Richards will be playing for this season (if we keep him) is pride. I had to watch this guy "play for pride" last year and it wasn't pretty. Cut him loose and use the cap space on someone that sucks less and we're already better off
