Clippers deal Harris to Sixers in multiplayer deal

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.

On Tuesday night, ESPN reported that the Sixers had agreed to trade a young player, some good picks, and an expiring contract for a major offensive weapon, whatever Boban is, and an underrated stretch four.

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.

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

According to ESPN and multiple reports, the Sixers acquired Tobias Harris from the Los Angeles Clippers in a six-player trade that also involves draft picks.

As the National Basketball Association trade deadline approaches, there is finally a blockbuster deal done in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, the Clippers have re-stocked their roster with pieces for the future by acquiring rookie guard Landry Shamet and four draft picks.

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.

Harris, 26, is in the midst of a career year as he is averaging 20.9 points and 7.9 rebounds per game - both team highs for the Clippers. Woj added that the second-round picks were 2021 and 2023, while Ramona Shelbourne clarified some of the protections, notably that the Sixers' 2020 first-round pick is lottery protected through 2022 before converting into a pair of seconds.

After a loss to Toronto, Philadelphia (34-20) now sits at fifth in the Eastern Conference.
