Buy-outs are a different kettle of fish from retirement. I'm not sure they need to be handled in exactly the same way either. Not that I'm opposed, per se, to the 50-25% split you're suggesting, but on the other hand it also does behoove an individual manger to rate the likelihood of imminent retirement when they're signing guys to multi-year contracts. In the case of a buy-out you're also freeing up the player to potentially be signed by another team to some profit, whereas with retirement there's no benefit (even potentially) to other teams. Anyway, my main point is that the two scenarios aren't similar enough that I'm sure they need to be handled in exactly the same way (nor am I really that impressed with the idea of giving managers who give ill-though-out contracts to geriatric players quite that easy an out).

i prefer straight 50% all the way too. nba has a mechanism for handling such a situation, but it is too complicated for us. anybody else has any thoughts about this?

I like this as well. I would assume we won't end up with huge contracts with retiring players so the dollar values won't be a huge big deal. I would guess most retired guys would have contracts in the few million and under.

We'd probably have to evaluate medical retirement and possible player death as different entities as well since the NBA does it that way.

Yeah, medical retirement and death should certainly be handled differently. And probably more generously when it comes to rebating contract.

There is kind of a way this is handled anyways, since based on injury if someone doesn't play a certain amount in a few years then they are taken of the books completely. So we go 50% first year and removed during the second year.
