Trading Harris, the team's leading scorer whom the team reportedly meant to re-sign over the summer, could have been a gamble of sorts for the Clippers, after a rousing start to the season and a sudden decline in the past two months.

He's a flawless fit for the Sixers' starting lineup, and along with Ben Simmons, J.J. Redick, Jimmy Butler and Joel Embiid, the Sixers now have arguably the most talented group in the Eastern Conference. 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.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the teams agreed to a six-player trade that sends Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic and Mike Scott to Philadelphia in exchange for Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala and four draft picks. It's likely that Scott will step in for Muscala, but Jonah Bolden has also impressed at times this season and could see a decent workload moving forward.

"Sixers are loading up with a fourth All-Star caliber player in East, Harris", Wojnarowski wrote.

Harris, 26, is in the midst of a career year as he is averaging 20.9 points and 7.9 rebounds per game - both team highs for the Clippers. They'll have big decisions in the summer, when Butler and Harris are both due for free agency, but for now, they're going to be really good.

They should fall off, though that's probably not a bad thing for them anyway.

While they're still not quite at the Warriors level yet, the 76ers are building a nice foundation for a strong playoff push.

The Sixers have pulled the trigger on a blockbuster trade. Plus Shamet has shown some signs of being a solid rotation player as well.
