Turkoglu and Harrington buyouts...

I figured I would make a FanPost regarding these two veterans because I am confused about their "negotiated buyouts", and I thought maybe others were thinking along the same lines. I realize that Hedo's contract expires after this upcoming season, however the 12 million is only "half" guaranteed. Al has two more seasons under contract, but again those figures are only half guaranteed if a buyout was executed. I got this information from ESPN, Hoopsworld, etc. I also have read that Orlando has until the winter to make a decision before the contracts become fully guaranteed in 2013 for both Hedo and Al.

My question is, if the team has pretty much given all indication that they are moving on without Al or Hedo, what is the "negotiation" about? Specifically, what possibly could both sides be negotiating? Either they want to buy them out or not, correct? From my understanding, the players have to be entitled to half of the salary, so I can't figure out what the monetary figure under negotiation would be? Can anyone clarify?
