Clippers forward Tobias Harris is reportedly headed to the Sixers in a multi-player trade.

Per Wojnarowski, the Sixers will receive Harris, center Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott.

According to ESPN and multiple reports, the Sixers acquired Tobias Harris from the Los Angeles Clippers in a six-player trade that also involves draft picks.

The Clippers re-stocked the roster with pieces for the future.

The 26-year-old Harris joins Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Jimmy Butler and JJ Redick to give the Sixers a star-studded starting lineup. The pick had previously been sent to the Phoenix Suns as part of a trade centered around guard Goran Dragic, before being re-routed to the 76ers along with Zhaire Smith in exchange for Mikal Bridges on draft day last summer.

A free agent at the end of the season along with Butler, Harris was pleased with the trade and showed his appreciation with a Philadelphia scene from the opening credits of Fresh Prince. He averaged eight points for Philadelphia, playing in an average 20 minutes per game.

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.

Butler also hasn't always looked comfortable in his role on the Sixers, and adding another high-volume scorer into the mix might only further frustrate him if they don't at least reach the conference finals.
