Sixers acquire Tobias Harris in blockbuster trade with Clippers

Tobias Harris

Most notably, the talk surrounding New Orleans Pelicans big man Anthony Davis has dominated headlines after he requested a trade last week.

Per to the report, the 76ers want to sign Harris beyond this season (he can become a free agent after in the summer) and use him to form a "Big 4" of Harris, Jimmy Butler, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.

Harris was among the most notable Western Conference All-Star snubs this season, with the 26-year-old forward averaging 20.7 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 2.7 assists across 54 games with the Clippers.

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.

They'll surely target Davis and Kawhi Leonard for those two spots, both of who expressed interest in joining the organization, according to ESPN. Now, the Clippers own that unprotected first-round selection.

It's a lineup that Philadelphia plans to keep for the foreseeable future as the team reportedly plans to re-sign Both Butler and Harris this offseason.

Butler also hasn't always looked comfortable in his role on the Sixers, and adding another high-volume scorer into the mix might only further frustrate him if they don't at least reach the conference finals.

The reason Harris is now on the Sixers is to juice up their offense.

Depth is still a major issue, especially at guard, but if former No.1 overall pick Markelle Fultz and rookie Zhaire Smith can come back and produce this season, then this team is must-see TV.
