Magic trade Jonathan Simmons for Sixers’ Markelle Fultz

Markelle Fultz Sixers

The 76ers traded up in the 2017 draft with the rival Boston Celtics to grab Fultz with the first pick, a move that has failed in hindsight as Boston got arguably the best player in the draft with the No. 3 pick in Jayson Tatum.

After literally months of waiting, anticipation, and disappointment, the Philadelphia 76ers have finally traded Markelle Fultz to the Orlando Magic for shooting guard Jonathon Simmons, an Oklahoma City top-20 protected 2020 first round pick and a future second-round pick.

Fultz is going into a scenario where he will have little pressure and is in no rush to perform at a high level off the bat, according to Wojnarowski.

The selection of Fultz won't turn out to be a complete wash for the 76ers, but the return of a first-round pick from a projected playoff team, a second-round pick and Simmons pales in comparison to the haul of the No. 3 overall pick and additional first-round pick they sent the Celtics to select him.

The subpoena seeks a wide range of documents, including information on any donations "made by or on behalf of foreign nationals". On that same day, a Qatari delegation reportedly visited the building to meet with Flynn and campaign chairman Stephen K.

That logic doesn't apply to this situation, or to the trade Brand made.

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. Expect the Sixers to stay active on the buyout market, as well. He is still just 20 years old and under team control on his rookie contract through 2021, when he could become a restricted free agent. He dealt with either the yips or a shoulder injury, depending on what you choose to believe.

The Magic will gamble on the point guard's talent that perhaps has a better chance of resurfacing on a rebuilding team in a smaller media market. They hope Fultz can at least be that.

National Basketball Association reporter Keith Smith says the Sixers will take caution with Fultz and that he may not play for them this season.
