LA Clippers trade Tobias Harris to loaded Sixers

Adjust Comment Print

The Philadelphia 76ers have traded former Shocker Landry Shamet to the Los Angeles Clippers Wednesday, CBS Sports reports. The Los Angeles Clippers have their eyes on making big strides after this season. 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.

Trading Harris, the team's leading scorer whom the team reportedly meant to re-sign over the summer, could have been a gamble of sorts for the Clippers, after a rousing start to the season and a sudden decline in the past two months.

Harris, 26, is having a breakout season with the Clippers and is now averaging 20.7 points per game while shooting 42 percent from 3-point range.

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.

Philadelphia gained center Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott.

The NBA trade deadline is Thursday at 3 p.m. EST.

The 76ers added Butler in their first blockbuster trade earlier in 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. While the Lakers chase Anthony Davis, and the Knicks chase cap room to land Davis and/or Kevin Durant and/or Kyrie Irving, and the Celtics try and land Davis, the Sixers snuck in and struck a deal with the Clippers, who themselves are trying to get in on the free agent mania this summer.

Harris and Butler both become free agents at the end of the season and could leave the 76ers.

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