Philadelphia Sixers Trade Former No. 1 Pick Markelle Fultz to Orlando Magic

Markelle Fultz Sixers

Moving on from Fultz capped a 20-month saga that saw him play in only 33 regular-season games and spend much of his time away from the team while dealing with repeated issues with his shooting form.

Brown admitted that, in recent weeks, he'd begun to wonder if things would ever work out for Fultz in Philadelphia. He hasn't played since November 19 while undergoing therapy for thoracic outlet syndrome, which causes compression or irritation of the nerves or blood vessels in the area between the lower neck and upper chest. President of basketball operations Jeff Weltman was extremely ecstatic about the move and said that the "sky's the limit" as to what Fultz can do for the franchise.

"His ceiling is exceptionally high", Weltman said. In addition to posting a picture of a workout from last summer, Bamba jokingly chided Fultz for asking to stay at his Orlando condo while getting settled in the area. "But right now we had a chance to add a player, wing depth, and so we had to go do it now". "But I would feel ..."
