LA Clippers trade Tobias Harris to loaded Sixers

Tobias Harris

The Los Angeles Clippers have their eyes on making big strides after this season.

Harris was among the most notable Western Conference All-Star snubs this season, with the 26-year-old forward averaging 20.7 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 2.7 assists across 54 games with the Clippers. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the 76ers just acquired Tobias Harris from the LA Clippers in a monster trade.

With this trade, the Sixers are in a position to potentially re-sign both Harris and Jimmy Butler this offseason.

Headed to Philadelphia with Harris are Marjanovic, 30, a 7-foot-3 behemoth now averaging 6.9 points and 4.3 rebounds in just 10.7 minutes per game, and Scott, a 30-year-old power forward averaging 4.7 points and 3.3 rebounds per game.

The Sixers have pulled the trigger on a blockbuster trade.

The Pistons and Bucks are reportedly "finalising" the trade ahead of Thursday's (Friday AEDT) deadline.

The big return for the Clippers comes with those picks.

Shortly after the deal came to light, ESPN's Ramona Shelburne broke down the first-round picks Philly traded in the deal.

A free agent at the end of the season along with Butler, Harris was pleased with the trade and showed his appreciation with a Philadelphia scene from the opening credits of Fresh Prince.

Yet L.A. has successfully set the franchise as another with the cap room necessary to sign two max-level free agents and have the youth and flexibility to hone their young players into a support role.

The Sixers paid a steep future price to the Clippers, including rookie guard Landry Shamet, Philadelphia's own 2020 protected first-round pick and an unprotected 2021 first-round pick via the Miami Heat.

The Sixers are 34-20 and in fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
