The Clippers (30-25) wanted to move themselves into contention as players in the marketplace for stars wanting to get to the Los Angeles market, and the picks could go a long way to building a significant arsenal.

As the National Basketball Association trade deadline approaches, there is finally a blockbuster deal done in Los Angeles.

Per Wojnarowski, the Sixers will receive Harris, center Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott.

With this trade, the Sixers are in a position to potentially re-sign both Harris and Jimmy Butler this offseason.

The full trade, first outlined by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, kept coming clearer as supporting reports trickled in.

The Pistons and Bucks are reportedly "finalising" the trade ahead of Thursday's (Friday AEDT) deadline.

Meaning, if the Lakers win tonight, they'll only be a game back of the eighth seed with a healthy James on the roster. Kyle Kuzma (left hip strain) and Josh Hart (left knee tendinitis) also returned Thursday.


Meanwhile, the Clippers have re-stocked their roster with pieces for the future by acquiring rookie guard Landry Shamet and four draft picks. Those are all career-highs for the eight-year veteran who was drafted out of Tennessee by the Charlotte Bobcats in 2011 with the 19th overall pick in and traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in a draft-night deal.

Harris is making $14.8 million this season and will become a free agent at the end of the season. He averaging 20.9 points this season and shooting 43.4 percent from 3 while also grabbing 7.9 rebounds.

Yet L.A. has successfully set the franchise as another with the cap room necessary to sign two max-level free agents and have the youth and flexibility to hone their young players into a support role.

The Sixers also sent forwards Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala, and 2021 and 2023 second-round picks to the Clippers in the trade.

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