The Philadelphia 76ers have acquired forward Tobias Harris in a trade with the Los Angeles Clippers. The deal includes multiple players—including Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, and Boban Marjanovic—along with several draft picks. It was first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Sources: Clippers and Sixers have agreed to trade Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic, Mike Scott for Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala, 2020 first-rounder, 2021 unprotected 1st via Miami and two second rounders.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) February 6, 2019
Harris will join the 76ers, solidifying Philadelphia as a major threat in the East. He is an unrestricted free agent this summer, which may have encouraged the Clippers to move him.
Tobias Harris could be moving toward a maximum-level contract in free agency this summer, something that would've been difficult for Clippers to do with their own free agency aspirations.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) February 6, 2019
The Clippers will receive the Philadelphia’s lottery-protected first round 2020 pick as well as an unprotected 2021 first-rounder originally belonging to the Miami Heat.
The 2020 Sixers pick is lottery protected for 3 years. Becomes 2 second round picks (in 23 &24) if it doesn’t convey before then. The Miami first round pick in 21 is unprotected. https://t.co/CZiRNyvr8T— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) February 6, 2019
