Hawks, Magic Have Expressed Interest In Markelle Fultz

It's over; it's finally over.

The Orlando Magic have acquired guard and former No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz from the Philadelphia 76ers, according to Shams Charania of Stadium.

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

The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor reported that the picks will be a first-rounder via the Thunder and a second-rounder via the Cavaliers. He had from the same injury and was forced to sit for much of his rookie season a year ago, appearing in just 14 games.

The 76ers traded up in the 2017 draft with the rival Boston Celtics to grab Fultz with the first pick, a move that has failed in hindsight as Boston got arguably the best player in the draft with the No. 3 pick in Jayson Tatum.

The government can take an equity stake in Green New Deal projects "so the public gets a return on its investment", she added. President Donald Trump has scrapped Obama's plan, which imposed emissions limits on coal-fired power plants, as a job-killer.

As things presently stand, the 29-year-old guard is in the middle of a 3-year, $20 million deal that will pay him $5.7 million in 2019-20, but only $1 million of that is guaranteed (via Spotrac).

Fultz is owed $9.75 million for the 19-20 season, which will be a problematic figure for the 76ers if they re-sign Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris. The Sixers just gave away Fultz for next to nothing.

"Teams like Atlanta, Orlando, they've talked to Philadelphia on Markelle Fultz", said Adrian Wojnarowski.

Thus ends one of the most disappointing tenures for a No. 1 overall pick with the team that drafted him in National Basketball Association history. Who knows, but that's no longer the Philadelphia 76ers problem.

Markelle Fultz is on the move.
