Former first overall pick by the 76ers, Markelle Fultz, was traded to the Magic just before Thursday’s NBA trade deadline. Philadelphia is receiving a role player and a first and second round pick.

Orlando will be a change of scenery for Fultz, who struggled with a shoulder issue that affected his ability to shoot. He was welcomed to the Magic by fellow first round pick, Mo Bamba.
The 20-year-old joked that Markelle had contacted him for a place to stay after news of the trade broke.
If Fultz can get back anywhere close to the player he was in college then the Magic might be setup for a few years with a couple of young rising stars. At this point that’s a really big “if.”
