McDyess retired (comes off the books unlike a buy out) and he wasn't earning as much as Bonner. his buy out was around $2 mill the most, Bonner's is double that next year. Oberto retired too, so he didn't get a buy out option done. Bowen got bought out by the Bucks because he was an expiring deal from the RJ deal (he wasn't earning anything close to RJ).
you're also talking about a Spurs team that didn't have a lot of big contracts like they do this year. After the Big 3, the Spurs rarely had someone over $5 mill a year
