Avery is making 15.5 million for 4 years with Dallas. when dallas buys out his contract they will have to pay avery 2/3 of his remaining contract over the next 8 years. the team that picks avery up will only have to pay half of avery's remaining salary. This amounts to just under 2 million dollars for the next 4 years. but if you bring on avery and he is a complete mess to the team, this is how much it will cost to buyout avery at the end of the season. 12 million remaining on his 3 year contract (but dallas is paying half of that so you only have to pay 6 million. Buy that out (6 *(2/3) over the next 6 seasons. 4 million dollars over the next 6 years, starting at the beginning of next season. That would be a price of $666,666 over the next 6 years. I am not joking. Mathematics has proven that Sean Avery must be the devil.
