Sixers Pull Trigger On Blockbuster Trade For Tobias Harris

Rather, the LA Clippers have sent star forward Tobias Harris to the Philadelphia 76ers for Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala, Landry Shamet and two first-round picks, per The Athletic's Shams Charania.

The Clippers have agreed to trade Tobias Harris to the Sixers, reports ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. 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. Dealing Harris would likely lower the Clippers chances of completing their unlikely playoff push. He is averaging 20.7 points and 7.9 rebounds, and joins a Sixers squad that already features the likes of center Joel Embiid, small forward Jimmy Butler and point guard Ben Simmons.

There's a new blockbuster deal in the National Basketball Association, one that involves the other team in LA that doesn't involve LeBron James' open recruitment of Anthony Davis.

For first-year Sixers general manager Elton Brand, it is the second significant deal of the season - bringing Harris and Butler into the Sixers' lineup.

Torrel Harris, who is Tobias Harris' father and his agent, told The Athletic last night (via Jovan Buha): "Our experience with the Clippers organization was great".

Moments after the trade went through, Harris took to Twitter and posted a gif of Will Smith on a basketball court from the opening credits of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air".
