National Basketball Association trade deadline: 76ers send Fultz to Magic

National Basketball Association trade deadline: 76ers send Fultz to Magic

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

Fultz played in the 76ers' first 19 games this season, but he and his camp chose to sit out and rehab his shoulder that they claimed was never 100 percent.

Philadelphia will receive Jonathon Simmons, a first-round pick and a second-round pick in exchange for the 20-year-old guard.

Earlier this year, all the way back in January, rumor had it that the 76ers ownership group wanted to get back 'at least a first-round pick' to consider trading Fultz, and in this move, they got that, and oh so much more.

During his freshman season at the University of Washington (2016-17), Fultz played in 25 games with the Huskies, averaging 23.2 ppg., 5.9 apg., 5.7 rpg. and 1.60 stlpg.in 35.7 minpg., while shooting.413 (52-126) from three-point range.

LA Clippers trade Tobias Harris to loaded Sixers
In fact, it's not hard to argue that they won this trade, thanks to the savvy of Jerry West and the rest of LA's front office. With Harris set become a free agent at season's end, the Clippers faced the prospect of getting nothing in return for him.

He played just 14 games last season because of a shoulder injury that appeared to affect his shooting mechanics and made him one of the more scrutinized players in the National Basketball Association. The deal ends Fultz's time with the Sixers after just one-and-a-half seasons with the team.

"Simmons (6'6", 195, 9/14/89) has appeared in 41 games (nine starts) this season with Orlando, averaging 6.9 ppg., 2.4 rpg. and 2.3 apg.in 20.6 minpg. Fultz led all NCAA Division I freshmen and all Pac-12 players in scoring, while ranking sixth overall in the nation.

It might be somewhat obvious at this point, but the best way to characterize Fultz's future with the team might be "wait and see".

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.
