The future of Markelle Fultz with the Philadelphia 76ers remains uncertain.

The Philadelphia 76ers have agreed to trade former #1 overall pick Markelle Fultz to the Orlando Magic in exchange for Jonathon Simmons, a top-20 protected first round pick in 2020 (via OKC) and a second-round pick (via Cleveland).

According to Wojnarowski, the Magic are sending Jonathan Simmons, a first-round and a second-round pick to the Sixers.

Fultz is now sidelined while recovering from thoracic outlet syndrome, and though he's expected to play again this season, his problems extend well beyond his health. He played 14 games during his rookie season and 19 this season before shutting down, citing the nerve disorder.

We see a break from precipitation much of Wednesday before the next approaching area of low pressure arrives Thursday . The Poconos even has a chance to see some light icing, says meteorologist Ed Vallee of Empire Weather.

Fultz was the consensus No. 1 pick by pundits everywhere ahead of the 2017 draft. The 29-year-old has averaged 8.5 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 1.9 assists through four seasons split between the Magic and San Antonio Spurs. First, they added Jimmy Butler from the Minnesota Timberwolves, and just a few days ago they picked up Tobias Harris from the Clippers. Thursday's move made it official.

The Celtics were able to turn Markelle Fultz into Jayson Tatum.

The 20-year old point guard missed most of his rookie season with a shoulder injury and his struggles shooting the ball have been well documented over the course of his young National Basketball Association career.

It's a calculated move for Orlando to pick up a player it evidently believes still has the potential to be a difference maker at a relatively low cost.
