I mean, that makes sense, but his story explicitly cites sources, albeit unnamed, saying they are working on a three-team trade, not rumors from elsewhere. He also says the third team would have to include a first-round pick (back to the Sixers? But presumably another year).
Thybulle and pick represent close to $7 million of cap space. But it's also more about how the deal goes down and whether they're allowed to exceed the apron.
