National Basketball Association trade deadline preview: Analyzing Tobias Harris deal, discussing the biggest rumors

National Basketball Association trade deadline preview: Analyzing Tobias Harris deal, discussing the biggest rumors

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the 76ers just acquired Tobias Harris from the LA Clippers in a monster trade.

Center Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott were shipped to the Sixers. Whether the Pelicans honor that request before the deadline remains to be seen, and you can bet the Los Angeles Lakers will do all they can to make sure Dell Demps and Co.do move him before 3 p.m. on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the 76ers, fresh from a 119-107 home court thumping by Eastern Conference rival Toronto Raptors on Tuesday, have agreed to trade impressive rookie guard Landry Shamet, forwards Wilson Chandler and Mike Muscala and future first-round draft picks to the Clippers for Harris.

The Clippers re-stocked the roster with pieces for the future. Averaging almost 20 points and eight rebounds per game, he's now one of the Sixers best forwards alongside the Big 3 of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler, a situation he's clearly excited about.

Harris, 26, is having his best season as a pro and arguably should have earned his first All-Star nod.




The Sixers' four picks, in a trade first reported by ESPN, sent to the Clippers are their lottery-protected 2020 first-round pick, a 2021 first-rounder, a 2021 second-round pick and a 2023 second-round pick.

The team can see a path to the National Basketball Association championship this season and are willing to give up potential star Shandry and their draft picks.

With Harris set become a free agent at season's end, the Clippers faced the prospect of getting nothing in return for him.

For the Sixers, this is the second big-name acquisition for first-year Sixers General Manager Elton Brand, who snagged Jimmy Butler earlier this season from the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Clippers are 30-25 and have shed the salary needed to make them attractive for major free agents in the summer.
