For Houston, obvious
For Washington, they don't want to pay Portis all that money, but what if they could shed $1M from Simmons and pick up Capela on a reasonable deal, and fill their C position to grow with Beal?
For Brookyln, they clear $13M by trading Dinwiddie and Prince, and only taking back $1M in Simmons, which allows them to go sign 2 max FAs plus vets that fit to build around them. Kyrie/LeVert/KD/Vet/Allen
For Philly, turn Jimmy's $30M into a team friendly $10M for Dinwiddie who fits next to Ben, a $16M Portis who fits next to Embiid at the 4, and $3M Prince who can be signed next season with Ben to go over the cap or whatever. All 3 of these guys fit and fill immediate starting roles. Then we have however much money left to sign depth.
In this scenario, Sixers find another team to take on Gordon's salary to match money and absorb him into cap space while collecting a pick from Houston.
No way Brooklyn does this, they really like Dinwiddie and I'm sure they want Prince.
Houston needs to send Gordon out in this trade to match salaries.
Boston is Rumoured to want Capela so I'd ask for Jaylen Brown, Eric Gordon and Houston's 1st round pick
Capela to Boston and Jimmy to Houston.
Simmons/JJ/Brown/Harris/Embiid with Gordon/Scott/Thybulle/Smith/Bolden off the bench and hopefully we'd have money for a back up big like Vonleh
