76ers get Harris in 10-piece deal

The reported addition of Harris to a core that features Jimmy Butler, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons could propel the Sixers towards the top of the standings with 28 regular season games to play.

For parting with Harris and a pair of capable reserve big men, the Clippers are reportedly receiving Shamet, a rookie guard averaging 8.4 points and shooting 40.6 percent from 3-point territory, and a pair of veteran forwards in the 31-year-old Chandler and 27-year-old Muscala.

And the 76ers have identified Harris as a missing piece in their jigsaw as they look to emerge from the East and try to win their first National Basketball Association title since 1983.

The NBA trade deadline doesn't pass until Thursday afternoon at 3 p.m. ET, but there's been no shortage of speculation and rumors ahead of the pivotal milestone in the league's season.

The Sixers have pulled the trigger on a blockbuster trade.

The big return for the Clippers comes with those picks.

Harris was acquired by the Clippers last season in a trade with the Detroit Pistons centered on Blake Griffin.

The Sixers also give up four draft picks.

A free agent at the end of the season along with Butler, Harris was pleased with the trade and showed his appreciation with a Philadelphia scene from the opening credits of Fresh Prince. In turn, they sent Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala, two first-round picks and two second-round picks to the Los Angeles Clippers.

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. Philadelphia's odds of winning the Eastern Conference also jumped from 5-1 to 9-4 at the SuperBook.
