Per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, who broke the news, the Sixers will receive Marcus Morris, Nicolas Batum, Robert Covington and K.J. Martin, as well as multiple draft picks and a pick swap as part of the deal.

In exchange, the Clippers will get Harden, Tucker and Filip Petrusev, Woj added.

Along with those moves, the Sixers intend to waive veteran guard Danny Green to make room for the players being acquired from LA, Wojnarowski reported.

As for the picks, the Sixers are receiving 2028 unprotected first-rounder, two second-rounders, and the pick swap, per Wojnarowski. “The Clippers are also routing the 76ers an additional future first-round pick from a third team,” he wrote.

Harden, 34, demanded a trade, specifically to the Clippers, back in June after picking up his $35.6 million contract option. After months of on-again, off-again negotiations, the sides finally reached a deal.
