This deal didn't come cheap for the 34-20 Sixers, who now are the No. 5 seed in the East. League sources told ESPN the Clippers will get promising rookie guard Landry Shamet, Philadelphia's own 2020 protected first-round pick and an unprotected 2021 first-round pick via the Miami Heat.

The Sixers are sending back Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala, a 2020 1st-round pick, an unprotected 1st-round pick in 2021 via Miami, and 2nd-round picks in 2021 and 2023.

The Clippers will also send fan favorite big man Boban Marjanovic and reserve forward Mike Scott to the loaded Sixers.

Harris, 26, is the clear highlight of the deal.

On the Sixers side, Wojnarowski reports the team is attempting to create cap space and work the contracts to keep "a new Big 4" of Harris, Jimmy Butler, and All-Stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons intact beyond the impending free agencies of the former two stars.

The Sixers had offered two second-rounders to the New Orleans Pelicans for forward Nikola Mirotic earlier this week.

Harris is making $14.8 million this season and will become a free agent at the end of the season. However, sources told Wojnarowski that the Clippers' brass did not make this trade with the sole objective of pursuing Davis - either before Thursday's deadline or in the offseason.

"Harris could be moving toward a maximum-level contract in free agency this summer, something that would've been hard for Clippers to do with their own free agency aspirations", Wojnarowski wrote. Harris is in the midst of a career-year, putting up 20.7 points and 7.9 rebounds per game, while shooting over 42 percent from downtown.
