Harris will move to the Wells Fargo Center as the centerpiece of a six-player, four-draft pick trade.

Rookies Landry Shamet and Wilson Chandler and center Mike Muscala are headed to LA.

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

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

There's a new blockbuster deal in the National Basketball Association, one that involves the other team in LA that doesn't involve LeBron James' open recruitment of Anthony Davis.

Davis included the Clippers on a list of teams he would be willing to commit to long term if traded, but Clippers president Lawrence Frank and general manager Michael Winger didn't make Wednesday's trade with the primary objective to pursue Davis, league sources said.

Solskjaer says this Manchester United midfielder can improve after victory
Marcus Rashford the game's only goal and Pogba assisted it with a superb pass. Speaking on that, Solskjaer said that player can still improve.

It is the second significant deal of the season for Brand, a first-year GM who brought Butler and then Harris to the Sixers' lineup.

The Pistons and Bucks are reportedly "finalising" the trade ahead of Thursday's (Friday AEDT) deadline.

"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. The Clippers are planning to pursue several All-NBA-caliber players, including Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard. 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. Plus Shamet has shown some signs of being a solid rotation player as well.

The trade improved the Sixers' odds of winning the National Basketball Association title from 16-1 to 10-1 at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.

After a loss to Toronto, Philadelphia (34-20) now sits at fifth in the Eastern Conference.
