The Philadelphia 76ers pulled off a big trade this morning, a day before the NBA Trade deadline, when they acquired Tobias Harris from the Los Angeles Clippers.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Clippers will send Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic, and Mike Scott to the Sixers for Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala, a 2020 first-rounder, a 2021 unprotected 1st rounder via the Miami Heat, and two second rounders.

Harris is pouring in a career year, posting 20.7 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 2.7 assists a game this season, All-Star caliber numbers.
