Former Husky Markelle Fultz gets a desperately needed fresh start with his trade to the Orlando Magic.
Sixers guard and former first overall draft pick Markelle Fultz reportedly is headed to the Magic.
The 76ers are giving up on the 2017 No. 1-overall pick, sending him to Orlando in exchange for shooting guard Jonathon Simmons, a first-round pick (via the Thunder) and a second-round pick, ESPN reported.
With his trade Wednesday for Tobias Harris, Brand clarified the Sixers' window. Fultz lost his starting spot in the rotation when the Sixers traded for Jimmy Butler. He's owed $5.7 million next season if the Sixers decide to keep him.
If not, Fultz will remain a part of the team for the foreseeable future... His present isn't especially clear either. In 19 games this season, he is averaging 8.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists. He may very well forge a good National Basketball Association career for himself, but it made little sense for Brand to bargain that he'd do so in Philadelphia.
On the morning of June 17, 2017, the Sixers put Kentucky point guard De'Aaron Fox through a pre-draft workout at their Camden, N.J., practice facility. Simmons is mostly a bench player, so recouping the draft picks will be big for Philly.
Markelle Fultz is still searching for his shot. His weird off-court saga, the mysterious disappearance of his jump shot, subsequent injury woes and the fact he'd become a poor fit next to ball-dominant Ben Simmons had made this a tenuous situation.
Although the chances of Fultz becoming a productive player for the Sixers had to be considered extremely slim, it is worth noting that Fultz developing into a role player would have been a nice consolation prize at this point. And by adding Simmons, he made a team that now has legitimate championship aspirations better.
You can tell the trade rumors are getting to the team's young guys, especially with the effort they put forth in IN last game. Davis told the Pelicans he wanted a trade, and James has made it clear that he'd love to play with him.
Rockets star James Harden is also excited to have Shumpert on the team because of his ability to play all over the court. Shumpert is a free agent after this season, so they procure a pick rather than risk him walk away for nothing.
Valanciunas hasn't played in almost two months after suffering a dislocated thumb, but is ready to return to the lineup. The Spaniard is slated to make $24.1 million this year and has a player option for $25.6 million next season.
Madrid will not pay the 250 million euros Chelsea want but they could reach a deal with Hazard's contract expiring in 2020. According to reports , they have put a £100m price tag on Hazard in a bid to ward off Real's interest.
The trio will be looking to make a big impact over the business end of the season as Arsenal try to finish in the top four. I work over the criticisms of me because I know that work in the present can change our way", he said.
