The Philadelphia 76ers are pushing their chips all in this year.

L.A. was jostling for position with the Utah Jazz for the seventh spot, but finds itself only a game ahead of the fast-chasing Sacramento Kings and 2.5 games over the struggling Los Angeles Lakers, who could make a last-minute push with LeBron James as the leader.

Tobias Harris, who's averaging 20.9 points for the Clippers, joins the All-Star trio of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler.

The big return for the Clippers comes with those picks. Woj added that the second-round picks were 2021 and 2023, while Ramona Shelbourne clarified some of the protections, notably that the Sixers' 2020 first-round pick is lottery protected through 2022 before converting into a pair of seconds.

For first-year Sixers general manager Elton Brand, it is the second significant deal of the season - bringing Harris and Butler into the Sixers' lineup.
