Magic reportedly acquire Markelle Fultz from 76ers for Jonathon Simmons, multiple picks

Markelle Fultz Sixers

The Orlando Magic are acquiring Philadelphia 76ers point guard Markelle Fultz, the Sixers confirmed via Jessica Camerato on Thursday.

If Philadelphia were to do that - along with granting Simmons the max extension Brand has already said he'll get this summer - the Sixers would soar far into the luxury tax.

"With Markelle, I'm extremely excited to talk to him and it's a fresh start for him in Orlando, " said Magic forward Aaron Gordon, who also dealt with the pressures of being a high draft pick in the past.

Fultz did not materialize into the player the Sixers hoped. The two of them played on USA Basketball's Under-18 team (along with current NBA players Trae Young, Jarrett Allen, Michael Porter Jr., Kevin Huerter, Hamidou Diallo) that not only captured the gold medal in Chile, but it went 5-0 and won by a margin of 30.4 points per game.

Fultz was a third-team All-American at the University of Washington. "This is an incredible opportunity for us to add a former No. 1 overall draft pick to our roster and to add depth to our backcourt. We're going to do it right, we're not going to do it fast". It can even be described as childish considering the struggles that the former No.1 overall pick has endured this season.

Brown said he got the news that Fultz had been traded while seeing it on NBA TV, having missed several messages from Brand leading up to the move happening because he had been talking on the phone. I would feel borderline cowardly to not look at you and say yeah, that's what needs to be the goal. I felt that. It was two emotions.

"I remember him ... just being tough and a really tough guard, " Isaac recalled. With Philadelphia going all-in with the Tobias and Jimmy Butler trades, a deal seemed inevitable before the start of next season, however. "But I would feel ..."
