Clippers agree to trade Harris to 76ers, report says

The Clippers could well miss out on going to the postseason with the assets they had before the trade, and locking up a promising rookie, future assets along with some expiring contracts sets them up to be big players in free agency. They'll have almost 4 all-stars on the court at the same time with Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Jimmy Butler and now Tobias Harris.

The centerpiece is Clippers forward Tobias Harris, who scored 34 points for the clippers Tuesday night, and averages 21 points a game. He averaged eight points for Philadelphia, playing in an average 20 minutes per game.

And the 76ers have identified Harris as a missing piece in their jigsaw as they look to emerge from the East and try to win their first National Basketball Association title since 1983.

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

Per Wojnarowski, the Sixers will receive Harris, center Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott.

As the National Basketball Association trade deadline approaches, there is finally a blockbuster deal done in Los Angeles. In return, the Clippers are receiving Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala and four picks. At 6'9, he is a little undersized to handle some fours, but that shouldn't be much of an issue in the Eastern Conference unless the Sixers ask him to guard Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Harris along with Butler and Redick are scheduled to become free agents after the season. According to Wojnarowski, while two of the picks are for the second round, another third is the 76ers' 2020 first-round pick and the fourth is the biggie - Miami's unprotected 2021 first-round pick. Philadelphia's odds of winning the Eastern Conference also jumped from 5-1 to 9-4 at the SuperBook.
