  • Sixers Trade Markelle Fultz To Magic

    76ers trade former No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz to Magic

    The Philadelphia 76ers traded 2017 No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz to the Orlando Magic on Thursday.

    The Magic sent forward Jonathon Simmons, a protected 2020 first-round pick (via Oklahoma City) and a 2019 second-round pick to the Sixers.

    Fultz has been sidelined since Nov. 19 after being diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, a condition that affects the nerves between the neck and shoulder.

    The point guard is averaging 8.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 19 games this season. He has played in only 33 games total in his two NBA seasons.

    Simmons is averaging 6.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 41 games this season.
