Any remorse at this point was worth throwing out, and both Fultz and the Sixers should benefit from moving in different directions. Since he played his last game for the Sixers on November 19, 2018, the only official, definitive update from the Sixers on Fultz was that he had been diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome.

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

Raymond Brothers, Fultz's agent, announced December 4 that Fultz was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome. The first-round pick is from Oklahoma City and the second-rounder is from Cleveland, per Kevin O'Connor. In 41 games this season, Simmons is averaging 6.4 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists in a little over 20 minutes of action per game.

In return, the Magic will send swingman Jonathon Simmons, a 2020 first-round pick and 2019 secounder back to the Sixers, per multiple reports.

He played just 14 games last season because of a shoulder injury that appeared to affect his shooting mechanics and made him one of the more scrutinized players in the National Basketball Association.

"We are extremely excited to welcome Markelle (Fultz) to the Magic family", said Weltman.

If not, Fultz will remain a part of the team for the foreseeable future... To have any chance of doing that, Fultz needed to go somewhere he could actually play through his mistakes, and with the Sixers' timeline having accelerated massively in the past six months, the Magic are a ideal low-pressure environment for him to do that. You could reasonably envision a scenario in which Fultz's physical therapy did the trick, he rediscovered his shot, and the Sixers regretted letting him go in a win-now move.

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