Instead of trying to win an National Basketball Association championship with a Big Three, the Philadelphia 76ers are going to try to do it with a Big Four.

Just hours after a tough home loss to the Toronto Raptors, the Sixers pulled off their second blockbuster trade of the 2018-19 National Basketball Association season.

According to multiple reports, the Sixers have reached an agreement with the Clippers to acquire Tobias Harris in a deal that includes several players and a number of picks.

The 76ers reportedly intend to sign Harris to an extension, establishing a new Big Four in the Eastern Conference with fellow midseason acquisition Jimmy Butler, along with holdovers Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, league sources told Wojnarowski.

So far, Harris is averaging 20.9 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists as the primary option in LA.

Cloud engineers and sales professionals also made up the bulk of the 4,000 employees it hired during the quarter, Porat said. Additionally, the company's net income totalled $8.95 billion United States dollars (roughly $11.74 billion CAD) in Q4 2018.

The reported deal would also send 7-foot-3 centre Boban Marjanovic and 6-foot-8 forward Mike Scott to Philadelphia.

The NBA trade deadline is Thursday at 3 p.m. EST. In return, the Clippers are receiving Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala and four picks.

Harris is ready for the move - he tweeted on Wednesday morning a GIF from the opening credits of the 1990s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air showing Will Smith's character playing basketball.

Yet L.A. has successfully set the franchise as another with the cap room necessary to sign two max-level free agents and have the youth and flexibility to hone their young players into a support role. They'll get the Sixers' 2020 first-round pick, as well as the Miami Heat's highly coveted unprotected 2021 first-round pick, which the Sixers obtained at the draft last summer. Philadelphia's odds of winning the Eastern Conference also jumped from 5-1 to 9-4 at the SuperBook.
