The trade will give the 76ers a "Big Four" with Harris joining All-Stars Simmons, Joel Embiid and Jimmy Butler for a legitimate shot of not only claiming the Eastern Conference title, but talent to challenge Western Conference powers Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets for the championship.

The Sixers have also made a trade with Toronto for promising third-year swingman Malachi Richardson, in return sending a 2022 second-round pick and draft rights to Turkish swingman Emir Preldžić to the Raptors.

Sixers general manager Elton Brand said Harris was the ideal fit and the team could contend this season.

Adrian Wojnarowski says that the Bucks will be getting Stanley Johnson on their roster, and trading Thon Maker to the Detroit Pistons.

Johnson is joining the league's best defensive team, and in the Bucks' fast-paced offence he may be able to impact the game with his slashing ability.

Maker's trade request was first reported over a week ago, meaning the Bucks have already had some time to explore potential deals. Wilson has usurped more of Maker's minutes in recent weeks. But at 7'1 he could help a lot as a backup for Pistons All-Star forward Blake Griffin or even as a backup for Andre Drummond.

Australian big man Thon Maker is headed to the Detroit Pistons and Ben Simmons' Philadelphia 76ers have added elite Los Angeles Clippers forward Tobias Harris to put themselves in position to claim the National Basketball Association title.
