Tobias Harris Traded To The Sixers
The Philadelphia 76ers have acquired Tobias Harris from the Clippers in a 6-player trade and a stockpile of future draft picks.
In the trade, the 76ers will get Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott. The Los Angles Clippers will get Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala, and rookie Landry Shamet. The Clippers will also get the Sixers 2023 2nd round pick, 2021 2nd round pick, 2021 1st round pick [(MIA unprotected 1st)], 2020 1st round pick.
The 76ers are no doubt mortgaging their future to win an NBA Championship now. The key word is now. Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris will be looking for max contracts or even near max contracts. Ben Simmons also has not gotten his inevitable $100 million-plus contract extension. Unless these 3 players do something like take cap-friendly short term deals, the Sixers have to win the title in summer 2019.
On a basketball level, the 76ers now have 3 guys that will get more one on one opportunities. The team will lack depth, but Coach Brown will have to be creative with when he plays his 4 stars.
