Sixers trade former No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz to Magic

Former Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz looks on against the Chicago Bulls

It's over; it's finally over.

The Orlando Magic have acquired guard Markelle Fultz from the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for forward Jonathon Simmons, a protected 2020 first round draft pick and a 2019 second round draft pick, President of Basketball Operations Jeff Weltman announced today.

Wow, I'm not going to lie, that's a pretty solid haul. The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor reported that the picks will be a first-rounder via the Thunder and a second-rounder via the Cavaliers. He's averaging 8.2 points and 3.1 assists in 19 appearances in 2018-19.

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.

Markelle Fultz is still searching for his shot.

Cavaliers, Kings, Rockets on verge of three-team deal
Knight has two seasons, including 2019, and about $30 million left on the five-year, $70 million deal he signed with the Suns. The 6-6, 205-pound guard was taken with the eighth overall pick in the 2014 draft by the Sacramento Kings out of MI .

And best of all, he's on a great contract.

There is no timetable for when Fultz will be able to play again.

Simmons' deal is much more tenable. First, they added Jimmy Butler from the Minnesota Timberwolves, and just a few days ago they picked up Tobias Harris from the Clippers.

Fultz who's just 20 years old has been in and out of the lineup with a nagging shoulder and wrist injury.

Fultz, on the other hand, will have an opportunity to revitalize his career down in Orlando, a team desperate for a point guard that has virtually no chance of making the playoffs this season, even after coming out to a hot start. Orlando can point out to its fans that it traded for a onetime No. 1 draft pick.
