Are Magic and Hawks both pursuing a Markelle Fultz trade with Sixers?

It's over; it's finally over.

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).

Wow, I'm not going to lie, that's a pretty solid haul.

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

"We want to make sure he's 100 percent and healthy when he does come back", Brothers said. The 76ers also get a second-round pick this year. Through two seasons, the Washington product has made just 33 regular-season appearances, averaging 7.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 3.4 assists in 20.6 minutes per game. Fultz led all NCAA Division I freshmen and all Pac-12 players in scoring, while ranking sixth overall in the nation.

In Japan, the capital's famous Tokyo Tower was due to turn red in celebration of the New Year - a first for the city. Throughout China , the holiday season, also known as chunjie, lasts for more than two weeks.

Simmons' deal is much more tenable.

Orlando thinks the 20-year-old can still reach his potential despite his early struggles, president of basketball operations Jeff Weltman told reporters Thursday shortly after the team traded for the guard.

With a cap hit of $8.3 million this season and $9.7 next season, moving Fultz became necessary if the Sixers plan on trying to sign both Jimmy Butler and newly-acquired Tobias Harris this offseason.

Fultz, on the other hand, will have an opportunity to revitalize his career down in Orlando, a team desperate for a point guard that has virtually no chance of making the playoffs this season, even after coming out to a hot start. Who knows, but that's no longer the Philadelphia 76ers problem.
