The Sixers pick up another star in Tobias Harris.
According to a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the full deal sees Harris, Boban Marjanovic and Mike Scott heading to Philadelphia, while the Clippers will acquire Landry Shamet, Mike Muscala, Wilson Chandler and a handful of picks. Additionally, Philadelphia also traded their second-round picks in 2021 and 2023. It converts to a 2022 second-round pick if undelivered prior. 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. Dealing Harris would likely lower the Clippers chances of completing their unlikely playoff push. Embiid is on the first year of a contract extension, while Simmons is on year three of his rookie deal.
The Clippers have been long linked to Toronto Raptors star Kawhi Leonard and with the acquisition of the 76ers stash of draft picks, they could entice the New Orleans Pelicans on a deal for All-Star big man Anthony Davis.

Early Wednesday morning, the two teams reportedly struck a deal that could help both of them reach their goals. However, sources told Wojnarowski that the Clippers' brass did not make this trade with the sole objective of pursuing Davis - either before Thursday's deadline or in the offseason.
With Harris set become a free agent at season's end, the Clippers faced the prospect of getting nothing in return for him.
