If for example I was to drop Amir Johnson does he count as being a vet in the last year of a 2 or 3 year contract so his buy out would be 25%? Or is he counted as a 75% buy out?
I'm still trying to get my mind around the whole buyout thing, so I don't know if I'm getting it right here. But I DO
know if you straight out drop Amir, he hits your cap for 75% this season, and 50% every season afterwards.
So, the way I understand it, if Amir is eligible for a buyout, and it's cheaper
than just flat out dropping him, that would be the way to go. Or
, if he's in the second to last year of his contract and he's eligible for a buyout, you can get him off your books without future costs.
I kinda get that whole part of it, math included - it's telling which guys are eligible for the buyout which throws me.
