Clippers Trade Tobias Harris to Sixers

Most notably, the talk surrounding New Orleans Pelicans big man Anthony Davis has dominated headlines after he requested a trade last week. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the 76ers are receiving Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic and Mike Scott from the Clippers.

In doing so, Philly got a 20-points per game scorer with 49-42-88 shooting splits and eight rebounds a game. He averaged 20.9 points and shot almost 50 per cent from three-point range and is expected to start with fellow All-Stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, along with Jimmy Butler and JJ Redick, to form one of the top starting fives in the Eastern Conference.

This trade makes a lot of sense for both sides.

The Sixers also give up four draft picks. They had also expressed interest in Orlando Magic wing Terrence Ross. Now, the Clippers own that unprotected first-round selection. His willingness to part with the majority of the team's assets shows his commitment to a win-now mentality, but putting all his eggs in this basket may come back to haunt him if they flop.

Porzingis's rookie contract is due to expire, allowing him to become a restricted free agent. He will have his introductory news conference in Dallas on Monday (Tuesday, Manila time).

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. They now have one of the most high-powered starting lineups in the NBA, and adding a 43 percent stretch forward to the eighth-ranked 3-point shooting team, according to basketball-reference, only makes them that much more risky.

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

Overall, it wouldn't be surprising if the Sixers weren't done dealing either, especially considering the lack of depth at the guard position now.
