Philadelphia 76ers Trade Markelle Fultz To Orlando Magic

Philadelphia 76ers Trade Markelle Fultz To Orlando Magic

"Markelle Fultz was the No. 1 pick in the draft two years ago, and it wasn't a fluke", Magic president Jeff Weltman told reporters Thursday.

Sixers GM Elton Brand said the time for the team to contend is now.

The Magic gave up Jonathon Simmons, as well as a first and second-round pick, which seemed like a lot for a player that can't even shoot free throws properly.

Before worrying about that, though, the Sixers have more pressing matters to deal with - namely, sorting out how these players are going to fit together.

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. Fultz took his official physical on Friday and is expected to re-join the Magic next week following the team's five-day, three-game road trip to Milwaukee, Atlanta and New Orleans. "That was our hope". "This is an incredible opportunity for us to add a former No 1 1 overall draft pick to our roster and to add depth to our backcourt".

"We want to make sure he's 100 percent and healthy when he does come back", Brothers said.

Philadelphia acquired forward Tobias Harris, center Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott from the Los Angeles Clippers for its own lottery-protected 2020 first-round draft pick, Miami's 2021 unprotected first-round pick, Detroit's second-round choices in 2021 and 2023 and forward Wilson Chandler, forward Mike Muscala and rookie guard Landry Shamet. Check out his reaction to the Fultz trade on Instagram. "I'd be lying if I didn't feel sad". "It was two emotions I had". Brown admitted that, in recent weeks, he'd begun to wonder if things would ever work out for Fultz in Philadelphia. Sad personally, selfishly I suppose, that I never really felt like I had the chance to coach him. "But I would feel ..." I never really felt like the city got a chance to see him.
