Averaging almost 20 points and eight rebounds per game, he's now one of the Sixers best forwards alongside the Big 3 of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler, a situation he's clearly excited about. Instead, it's the Clippers that have agreed to deal one of their signature players in Tobias Harris to the Philadelphia 76ers, in exchange for multiple players and future draft picks.

The Pistons and Bucks are reportedly "finalising" the trade ahead of Thursday's (Friday AEDT) deadline.

During this game, Cardiff players held up a T-shirt bearing the image of the missing Sala , who never played a game for the club. Investigators say they plan to release an interim report into the accident later this month.

And Rachel Nichols pointed out that the Clippers' 2019 pick - sent to the Celtics via Memphis in 2016 - is apparently lottery-protected in both the upcoming draft and 2020; it converts to a 2022 second-round pick if undelivered prior.

Harris along with Butler and Redick are scheduled to become free agents after the season.

The dam was holding 224% of its capacity Monday afternoon, according to CNN affiliate 9 News , after peaking Sunday night at 247%. One native resident, Erin Hahn , shared pictures of a crocodile sitting in shallow water on the tip of her father's drive.

For the Sixers, this is the second big-name acquisition for first-year Sixers General Manager Elton Brand, who snagged Jimmy Butler earlier this season from the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Rookies Landry Shamet and Wilson Chandler and center Mike Muscala are headed to LA. Harris and Butler both will be free agents this summer. The Hornets would seemingly be pretty motivated to get a deal done, as adding a veteran big man like Gasol could really go a long way in helping them reach the playoffs in a relatively wide-open Eastern Conference.
