On this episode of The HoopsHype Podcast, Alex Kennedy and Frank Urbina break down the six-player trade between the Philadelphia 76ers and L.A. Clippers.

Boban Marjanovic and Mike Scott will join Harris in heading to the Sixers while Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, and Mike Muscala will head to LA.

ESPN's Ramona Shelbourne clarified some of the protections on the Draft picks, notably that the Sixers' 2020 first-round pick is lottery protected through 2022 before converting into a pair of second-round picks.

This is a trade that will have huge ramifications around the league, both this season and moving forward. This will give the Sixers some all-star caliber players for the stretch run.

Harris is enjoying a career-best 20.7 points per game in 54 starts so far this season and is shooting career-best figures of 49.3 percent from the field and 42.2 percent from three-point range.




On the Sixers side, Wojnarowski reports the team is attempting to create cap space and work the contracts to keep "a new Big 4" of Harris, Jimmy Butler, and All-Stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons intact beyond the impending free agencies of the former two stars.

They should fall off, though that's probably not a bad thing for them anyway.

While they're still not quite at the Warriors level yet, the 76ers are building a nice foundation for a strong playoff push.

They also preview the 2019 National Basketball Association trade deadline, discussing 10 players who have surfaced in quite a few trade rumors this week.
