On topic: Meh, I hope this was just to open up a roster spot. Buying a guy out seems like an unwise use of resources if you don't actually use the roster spot for something.

I'd have to imagine this was the plan all along.

no offense to anyone, but this thread has pretty much wandered far away from the topic....whatever it was...

I wonder if Dell used the buyout money for his own contract?
Yes, you were right about Matt Carroll. And the rest of us were right about how to spell "barely." We all get things right sometimes and wrong other times. That's life. No need to boast about it.
Hakim Warrick Wanted Buyout From Hornets
The New Orleans Hornets recently shipped veteran forward Hakim Warrick to the Charlotte Bobcats in exchange for forward Matt Carroll. The Hornets acquired Warrick from the Phoenix Suns in the deal that also netted the team center Robin Lopez and a second-round pick (2014).
According to sources close to the situation, Warrick’s camp had been working on securing a buyout for the veteran over the past couple months so the forward could choose his next career destination. However, they couldn’t come to a separation agreement with the Hornets.
Warrick is set to earn $4 million this season, with a team option for the 2014 season.
From the beginning, it appeared Warrick didn’t fit Hornets head coach Monty Williams’ preferred style of play. After the Hornets’ preseason loss to Atlanta, Williams told HOOPSWORLD that Warrick needed to learn to play the team’s style.
“He has to keep working,” Williams said to HOOPSWORLD of Warrick back in October. “He has to keep working at it and he’s got to play the way that we play.”
Warrick has appeared in one game with the Bobcats, playing ten minutes while scoring five points and pulling down four rebounds.
Does this mean we just shipped out Warrick for nothing and still have to settle a buy out for his contract in 2013/14?
Warrick is the Bobcats' problem.

We'll see what happens with Carroll and the money.
