Sixers Give Up On Markelle Fultz, Trade Former No. 1 Pick

It's over; it's finally over.

Of interest to fans of the Philadelphia 76ers is the fact that, according to Wojnarowski, the Atlanta Hawks and Orlando Magic are both interested in pursuing a trade with the Sixers for Markelle Fultz.

"We are extremely excited to welcome Markelle (Fultz) to the Magic family", said Weltman.

Now granted, the move doesn't really bring a whole lot of star power back to the City of Brotherly Love, but really could we have asked for a better haul for a player who hasn't suited up since mid-November?

Fultz' second year in Philadelphia was tumultuous.

Messi left out of starting lineup against Real Madrid
Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele is unlikely to be fit for the game, as he is still recovering from a hamstring injury. If Messi plays it will be because he is fit.

He's averaging 8.2 points and 3.1 assists per game this year.

Though Fultz became the first teenager in National Basketball Association history to record a triple-double, doing so on the final game of the 2017-18 regular season, he's also struggled to find his shooting stroke. There's a definite possibility that he's never able to put everything together again, but he still has all sorts of talent.

Simmons' deal is much more tenable.

Fultz is owed $9.75 million for the 19-20 season, which will be a problematic figure for the 76ers if they re-sign Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris.

Fultz, on the other hand, will have an opportunity to revitalize his career down in Orlando, a team desperate for a point guard that has virtually no chance of making the playoffs this season, even after coming out to a hot start. The C's acquired him with the third pick in the draft, which they swapped to Philly for the No. 1 pick and a future first-rounder that will likely be Sacramento's and end up in the teens.
