The Sixers have been desperate to get rid of his contract for years now. They were willing to just give up the number 2 pick in 2010 to any team willing to take on his contract. And, they just re-signed Thaddeus Young to a big contract extension and drafted Nikola Vucevic. So, I don't think it would take much to get him.
But, he played well last season, and hasn't missed a lot of games the last 2 seasons. He was a 15 and 8 guy both last regular season and in the playoffs. It's only for 2 more years, so he would expire right before the new luxury tax rates kick in.
It would look like this:
So basically... Howard and Brand vs Bynum and Gasol.
