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. The deal ends Fultz's time with the Sixers after just one-and-a-half seasons with the team.
Fultz has played in only 33 games since being taken No. 1 overall in the 2017 draft.
Sixers guard and former first overall draft pick Markelle Fultz reportedly is headed to the Magic. Philly was never going to recuperate the value of using a top pick on Fultz due to the point guard problems stemming from thoracic outlet syndrome.
Meanwhile, the Sixers will receive a first round pick, a second rounder, and 6'6 wing Jonathon Simmons. He's averaging 6.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 20.6 minutes over 41 games with the Magic this season.
With a cap hit of $8.3 million this season and $9.7 next season, moving Fultz became necessary if the Sixers plan on trying to sign both Jimmy Butler and newly-acquired Tobias Harris this offseason.
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.
It became increasingly clear that Fultz was not a part of those plans.
The 20-year-old has been out indefinitely since November 19 while rehabbing from thoracic outlet syndrome.
Fultz is getting moved for Jonathan Simmons, as well as a 2020 first-round pick that Philadelphia used to own but was conveyed in other deals. To have any chance of doing that, Fultz needed to go somewhere he could actually play through his mistakes, and with the Sixers' timeline having accelerated massively in the past six months, the Magic are a flawless low-pressure environment for him to do that.
