As the National Basketball Association trade deadline approaches, there is finally a blockbuster deal done in Los Angeles.

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.

For parting with Harris and a pair of capable reserve big men, the Clippers are reportedly receiving Shamet, a rookie guard averaging 8.4 points and shooting 40.6 percent from 3-point territory, and a pair of veteran forwards in the 31-year-old Chandler and 27-year-old Muscala.

The NBA trade deadline doesn't pass until Thursday afternoon at 3 p.m. ET, but there's been no shortage of speculation and rumors ahead of the pivotal milestone in the league's season.

Meanwhile, the Clippers have re-stocked their roster with pieces for the future by acquiring rookie guard Landry Shamet and four draft picks. While the Lakers chase Anthony Davis, and the Knicks chase cap room to land Davis and/or Kevin Durant and/or Kyrie Irving, and the Celtics try and land Davis, the Sixers snuck in and struck a deal with the Clippers, who themselves are trying to get in on the free agent mania this summer.

Harris, 26, is having his best season as a pro and arguably should have earned his first All-Star nod.

Harris along with Butler and Redick are scheduled to become free agents after the season. As part of the deal, the Clippers will also receive a protected 2020 first-round pick from the Sixers, a 2021 unprotected first-round pick via Miami, second-round picks in 2021 and 2023.

For the Sixers, this is the second big-name acquisition for first-year Sixers General Manager Elton Brand, who snagged Jimmy Butler earlier this season from the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Sixers are 34-20 and in fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
