Philadelphia 76ers Trade Markelle Fultz To Orlando Magic

Share

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski first reported that the 76ers have agreed to trade Fultz to the Orlando Magic in exchange for Jonathan Simmons, a first and second-round pick.

The 76ers will receive Jonathon Simmons, a 2020 first-round pick, and a 2019 second-round pick.

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 had a tumultuous time in Philadelphia where he dealt with a hitch in his jump shot, a couple of injuries and a fair amount of underachievement. He played 14 games during his rookie season and 19 this season before shutting down, citing the nerve disorder.

Now, in moving Fultz, the Sixers have officially closed the book on The Process.

The Sixers traded up from No. 3 overall in 2017 to select Fultz.
