Amid the whirlwind of Anthony Davis trade rumors, the National Basketball Association community finally has a tangible trade to be excited about. The trade in full sends Harris, Boban Marjanovic, and Mike Scott to the 76ers, while the Clippers will receive Wilson Chandler, Landry Shamet, and Mike Muscala, in addition to their 2020 first-round pick and a 2021 unprotected 1st rd pick via Miami.
The LA Clippers and Philadelphia 76ers made a blockbuster deal, it was announced Wednesday, sending forward Tobias Harris to partner with the Sixers' Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler in pursuit of an Eastern Conference title.

Woj added that the second-round picks were 2021 and 2023, while Ramona Shelbourne clarified some of the protections, notably that the Sixers' 2020 first-round pick is lottery protected through 2022 before converting into a pair of seconds. At 6'9, he is a little undersized to handle some fours, but that shouldn't be much of an issue in the Eastern Conference unless the Sixers ask him to guard Giannis Antetokounmpo.
For the Sixers, this is the second big-name acquisition for first-year Sixers General Manager Elton Brand, who snagged Jimmy Butler earlier this season from the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Freezing rain warning issued for Wednesday
The daytime high was 43 degrees warmer than Friday's high temperature - a remarkable increase for a 72-hour period. As temperatures rise during the day Wednesday any lingering showers will switch to plain rain with ice melting.
Butler and Harris are both on expiring contracts and will surely be looking for max deals this offseason. Whether the Pelicans honor that request before the deadline remains to be seen, and you can bet the Los Angeles Lakers will do all they can to make sure Dell Demps and Co.do move him before 3 p.m. on Thursday. Many felt he had a legitimate case to make the All-Star team for the first time in his career. Harris can play off-ball and create his own shot when needed, so there's no reason why he can't jell with the second-best assisting team in the league.
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.
