The key here is to think of this not from an overall evaluation of the trade in which they gave up a lot, but to see it as the Sixers essentially shooting a gap.

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.

The Sixers also get big man Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott.

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. "All three players bring high character to our locker room and we are excited about their fit alongside Joel, Ben, Jimmy and our entire roster". The Los Angeles Clippers have their eyes on making big strides after this season.

Davis included the Clippers on a list of teams he would be willing to commit to long term if traded, but Clippers president Lawrence Frank and general manager Michael Winger didn't make Wednesday's trade with the primary objective to pursue Davis, league sources said.

Maddison says it is a boost for everyone to see the Club signing players of the Belgium international's calibre among their ranks. Anthony Martial has committed himself to a new, five-year contract and talks are continuing for David de Gea to do the same.

Harris, 26, is the clear highlight of the deal.

We'll continue to keep you posted on further trades in the National Basketball Association as the deadline nears tomorrow afternoon.

Harris is going into free agency this Summer, and the Clippers reportedly wouldn't been able to pay him a max-level contract, ultimately getting nothing in return for his departure. The Clippers are planning to pursue several All-NBA-caliber players, including Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard.

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.

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