Sorry for the question, but in Europe we have a completely different system considering trades, contracts etc. So it's sometimes hard to understand how it works overseas. Assume, we have a player who earns $6.000.000 (new CBA) per year and has 3 years left on his contract. Now the team wants to buyout the player. How much do they have to pay ? Who gets the money ? How much does it still count against the cap ? Can the player do anything against the buyout ?
