Magic reportedly acquire Markelle Fultz from 76ers for Jonathon Simmons, multiple picks

"We are extremely excited to welcome Markelle (Fultz) to the Magic family", said Weltman.

Fultz is getting moved for Jonathan Simmons, as well as a 2020 first-round pick that Philadelphia used to own but was conveyed in other deals.

Fultz averaged 7.7 points, 3.4 assists and 3.4 rebounds in 33 games as a member of the Sixers. Simmons is owed $1 million next season, as it is partially guaranteed.

In the final minutes before Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline, the Magic acquired former No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz from the Philadelphia 76ers for a relatively low cost: swingman Jonathon Simmons, a protected 2020 first-round pick that originally belonged to another team and a 2019 second-round pick. Brothers said the condition is the reason for Fultz's shooting woes and that his client would remain sidelined at least three to six weeks. Outside of one game where he recorded a triple-double, Fultz offered nearly nothing to the team during his time with the Sixers. Physical therapy was recommended for Fultz before returning to play.

Orlando is well aware that a comeback situation in the East is highly unlikely, and would rather operate with the promise of a bright future than acquire players in hopes to crack one of the last few seeds in a tight race for the playoffs.

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. Furthermore, Elton Brand has made it clear that the Sixers are in win-now mode, trying to make a run this season. Paying Fultz almost $10 million as a potentially non-contributor yet seems irresponsible.
