Sixers trade Fultz to Magic for Jonathon Simmons, 2 picks

Markelle Fultz had no value and the Sixers didn’t care. That says it all. | David Murphy Thursday's trade shows the Sixers had no interest in finding out what value if any Markelle Fultz could bring to the franchise

The Philadelphia 76ers have given up on Markelle Fultz less than two years after selecting him No. 1 overall in the 2017 NBA Draft.

If Simmons meshes well with the other Simmons and company, then the Sixers can retain the 6-foot-6 defensive winger for half the price of Fultz's contract, but if he's underwhelming, the team can simply cash out for a minor nominal fee and reinvest that money into a more useful piece, like J.J. The 76ers also get a second-round pick this year. Boston therefore will receive the Sacramento Kings' 2019 first-round pick (No. 1 protected). By securing the two draft picks, Brand didn't abandon the Sixers' future. Furthermore, Elton Brand has made it clear that the Sixers are in win-now mode, trying to make a run this season. He had from the same injury and was forced to sit for much of his rookie season past year, appearing in just 14 games.

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, an excellent shooter coming out of Washington (47.6 FG% / 41.3 3P% / 64.9 FT%) and one of the main reasons the Sixers moved up to get him, quickly became unable to shoot after his first summer as an National Basketball Association player. Even if Fultz has a rebirth in Orlando, if Philly hits its ceiling as a Finals contender, it will be something everyone can stomach.

The Magic will gamble on the point guard's talent that perhaps has a better chance of resurfacing on a rebuilding team in a smaller media market. Altogether, this is a worthy, intelligent gamble by Orlando that could inject some energy into their organization.
