He should, upon joining the team, immediately slot in at power forward, a more natural fit for him after playing at the three for the Clippers most of the year. Harris, 26, leads the Clippers in scoring at 20.9 points per game and rebounding at 7.9 boards per game.
With the trade, the 76ers are now looking to be front runners for the Eastern division.

While you were sleeping, the Sixers on Wednesday morning made a blockbuster deal before sunrise.
The big return for the Clippers comes with those picks. 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. Those are all career-highs for the eight-year veteran who was drafted out of Tennessee by the Charlotte Bobcats in 2011 with the 19th overall pick in and traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in a draft-night deal.
A free agent at the end of the season along with Butler, Harris was pleased with the trade and showed his appreciation with a Philadelphia scene from the opening credits of Fresh Prince.
After a loss to Toronto, Philadelphia (34-20) now sits at fifth in the Eastern Conference.
