Sixers acquire Tobias Harris in blockbuster trade with Clippers

Tobias Harris

The Philadelphia 76ers have made another move in their quest to become National Basketball Association champions by trading for Los Angeles Clippers' star Tobias Harris.

The returns for the Clippers on the deal include Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala, two first round picks, and two second round picks.

Before being selected by the Sixers, Shamet led Wichita State to back to back NCAA tournament appearances as the team's point guard.

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.

Authorities said Marks is "extremely dangerous" and that anyone who sees him should immediately call 911. Their bodies were found January 15 in Oklahoma, and three days later Marks was named a suspect.

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

According to O'Connor, that's not yet a done deal as there is some dispute over the protections of that draft pick. They'll get the Sixers' 2020 first-round pick, as well as the Miami Heat's highly coveted unprotected 2021 first-round pick, which the Sixers obtained at the draft last summer. The guys give Sixers general manager Elton Brand a ton of credit for making such strong moves just 140 days into his tenure as GM.

Butler also hasn't always looked comfortable in his role on the Sixers, and adding another high-volume scorer into the mix might only further frustrate him if they don't at least reach the conference finals.

On the Sixers side, Wojnarowski reports the team is attempting to create cap space and work the contracts to keep "a new Big 4" of Harris, Jimmy Butler, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons intact beyond the impending free agencies of the former two stars.
