Markelle Fultz traded by Philadelphia 76ers to Orlando Magic

The Sixers traded the 2017 third overall pick and an additional first-rounder to the Boston Celtics in order to acquire the top pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

If Philadelphia were to do that - along with granting Simmons the max extension Brand has already said he'll get this summer - the Sixers would soar far into the luxury tax.

The Sixers (34-20) traded Fultz to the Orlando Magic (23-32) for forward Jonathon Simmons, plus a 2020 first-round pick and a 2019 second-round pick. Fultz showed signs of his defensive ability when he was playing for the Sixers earlier this season.

We can't wait to see the two play together, although who knows when Fultz will actually be cleared to do so. "That was our hope".

Philadelphia acquired forward Tobias Harris, center Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott from the Los Angeles Clippers for its own lottery-protected 2020 first-round draft pick, Miami's 2021 unprotected first-round pick, Detroit's second-round choices in 2021 and 2023 and forward Wilson Chandler, forward Mike Muscala and rookie guard Landry Shamet. "We're going to do it right, we're not going to do it fast".

"We want to make sure he's 100 percent and healthy when he does come back", Brothers said. "I'm glad that he's a part of our team now and hopefully I can talk to him and help him with whatever he's been going through".

"Toward the end I wondered, and I would be lying if I didn't start wondering a lot", Brown said. "And it was two emotions I felt, sad personally, selfishly I suppose that I never really felt like I got a chance to coach him". "I think he's a 20-year-old player with tremendous potential and I feel confident in saying the league looks at him that way, not just us". "But I would feel ..."

"And I was pleased for him that, you know, he had a new start".
