The Philadelphia 76ers are pushing their chips all in this year. The Los Angeles Clippers have their eyes on making big strides after this season. Averaging almost 20 points and eight rebounds per game, he's now one of the Sixers best forwards alongside the Big 3 of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler, a situation he's clearly excited about. Harris is in the midst of a career-year, putting up 20.7 points and 7.9 rebounds per game, while shooting over 42 percent from downtown. In return, the Clippers are receiving Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala and four picks.

The Philadelphia 76ers already made an "all-in" trade during the 2018-19 season, acquiring soon-to-be free agent swingman Jimmy Butler after his relationship with the Minnesota Timberwolves deteriorated. 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. He had a big game Tuesday, scoring 34 points and hitting the decisive basket in the final seconds of the Clippers' 117-115 road win over the Charlotte Hornets.

At first glance Clippers fans might be saddened by moving out the talents of Tobias Harris and the crowd-pleasing fan favorite Boban Marjanovic.
