Clippers trade Tobias Harris to 76ers in late-night blockbuster

The Philadelphia 76ers took a huge step forward in their push to become a top National Basketball Association title contender this year.

The trade will give the 76ers a "Big Four" with Harris joining All-Stars Simmons, Joel Embiid and Jimmy Butler for a legitimate shot of not only claiming the Eastern Conference title, but talent to challenge Western Conference powers Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets for the championship. Instead, it's the Clippers that have agreed to deal one of their signature players in Tobias Harris to the Philadelphia 76ers, in exchange for multiple players and future draft picks.

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.

They'll get the Sixers' 2020 first-round pick, as well as the Miami Heat's highly coveted unprotected 2021 first-round pick, which the Sixers obtained at the draft last summer.
