Sixers acquire Tobias Harris in blockbuster trade with Clippers

Sixers acquire Tobias Harris in blockbuster trade with Clippers

For parting with Harris and a pair of capable reserve big men, the Clippers are reportedly receiving Shamet, a rookie guard averaging 8.4 points and shooting 40.6 percent from 3-point territory, and a pair of veteran forwards in the 31-year-old Chandler and 27-year-old Muscala.

Philadelphia gained center Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott.

The Sixers are sending back Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala, a 2020 1st-round pick, an unprotected 1st-round pick in 2021 via Miami, and 2nd-round picks in 2021 and 2023.

The deal hasn't been announced by either side just yet but Harris essentially "confirmed" the reporting in an amusing way.

"Sixers are loading up with a fourth All-Star caliber player in East, Harris", Wojnarowski wrote.

I'm just gutted we didn't come away with the three points. We have the squad to be able to do that. We have to try to put pressure on them.

He's a flawless fit for the Sixers' starting lineup, and along with Ben Simmons, J.J. Redick, Jimmy Butler and Joel Embiid, the Sixers now have arguably the most talented group in the Eastern Conference.

The new Sixers host the Nuggets Friday night. They had also expressed interest in Orlando Magic wing Terrence Ross.

The Philadelphia 76ers already made an "all-in" trade during the 2018-19 season, acquiring soon-to-be free agent swingman Jimmy Butler after his relationship with the Minnesota Timberwolves deteriorated.

"Harris could be moving toward a maximum-level contract in free agency this summer, something that would've been hard for Clippers to do with their own free agency aspirations", Wojnarowski wrote. He averaged eight points for Philadelphia, playing in an average 20 minutes per game.

We'll continue to keep you posted on further trades in the National Basketball Association as the deadline nears tomorrow afternoon.
