EVERY TRADE WE WILL SEE THIS SEASON: TRADE 11 (TRADE DEADLINE)
LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS GET: Wilson Chandler and 2021 Miami Heat Unprotected First Round Draft Pick
PHILADELPHIA 76ERS GET: Tobias Harris
The Los Angeles Clippers have this trade set up with a follow up to use the pick gained in this trade to dump Danilo Gallinari’s salary outright. By the trade deadline the Clippers should be pretty out of the Western Conference playoff race so using Tobias Harris to dump Gallinari is something to consider. Tobias Harris is a really good basketball player, but Jerry West knows you don’t win championships by signing Harris to the contract he will get this summer so he may as well use him to gain cap space.
The Philadelphia 76ers should welcome a trade like this. They don’t lose cap flexbility or any players of significance to get a huge talent upgrade in hopes of grabbing the East. Harris provides a skill-set that could mesh very well in a line-up of Embiid-Harris-Covington-Redick-Simmons.
