As the National Basketball Association trade deadline approaches, there is finally a blockbuster deal done in Los Angeles.
The Philadelphia 76ers have acquired forward Tobias Harris from the Los Angeles Clippers in six-player trade that involves multiple draft picks, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. In return, they will receive forward Wilson Chandler, rookie guard Landry Shamet, big man Mike Muscala, a 2020 first-round pick, a 2021 first-rounder (via the Miami Heat) and two second-rounders to the Clippers.
The reported deal would also send 7-foot-3 centre Boban Marjanovic and 6-foot-8 forward Mike Scott to Philadelphia. "All three players bring high character to our locker room and we are excited about their fit alongside Joel, Ben, Jimmy and our entire roster".
The Philadelphia 76ers are going all-in on this year's team, while the Los Angeles Clippers are loading up on assets.
Senate breaks from Trump with Syria troop vote
He added that he would wait for clarifications from Washington on the numbers and nature of the US troops' mission in his country. Trump did not say whether he trusted Afghanistan's Taliban insurgent group but said he believed they want peace.
Harris, 26, is the clear highlight of the deal.
The Pistons and Bucks are reportedly "finalising" the trade ahead of Thursday's (Friday AEDT) deadline.
Harris is having his best National Basketball Association season, averaging 20.9 points on 50 percent shooting from the field and 43 percent from the 3-point line.
The Clippers meanwhile, got rid of Harris' expiring contract to prepare themselves with cap space for this summer's upcoming free agency class, which will most likely include superstars like DeMarcus Cousins, Kawhi Leonard and Kevin Durant. Plus Shamet has shown some signs of being a solid rotation player as well.
The Sixers are 34-20 and in fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
