The Philadelphia 76ers have traded former Shocker Landry Shamet to the Los Angeles Clippers Wednesday, CBS Sports reports. They'll have almost 4 all-stars on the court at the same time with Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Jimmy Butler and now Tobias Harris.
In doing so, Philly got a 20-points per game scorer with 49-42-88 shooting splits and eight rebounds a game.
Trading Harris, the team's leading scorer whom the team reportedly meant to re-sign over the summer, could have been a gamble of sorts for the Clippers, after a rousing start to the season and a sudden decline in the past two months.
Whether they keep the picks, or try to parlay them into a blockbuster trade of their own, the Clippers are nicely stocked for the future - one which they hope includes some big-name free agents, as they'll have plenty of cap space in the summer, especially now that they don't have to worry about re-signing Harris.
While the Sixers do lose some depth in the deal, they also add a top-tier starter along with a strong backup center in Marjanovic and a stretch-four in Scott.

LeBron James will play against Clippers
Lou Williams scored 24 points off the bench to lead the Clippers, who had won 22 of their previous 25 matchups against the Lakers. The Lakers are 6-11 in that span. "He looked good today", Lakers coach Luke Walton said Wednesday of James.
The Pistons and Bucks are reportedly "finalising" the trade ahead of Thursday's (Friday AEDT) deadline. According to Wojnarowski, while two of the picks are for the second round, another third is the 76ers' 2020 first-round pick and the fourth is the biggie - Miami's unprotected 2021 first-round pick.
And Rachel Nichols pointed out that the Clippers' 2019 pick - sent to the Celtics via Memphis in 2016 - is apparently lottery-protected in both the upcoming draft and 2020; it converts to a 2022 second-round pick if undelivered prior.
Harris is making $14.8 million this season and will become a free agent at the end of the season.
The Sixers are 34-20 and in fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
