Markelle Fultz Cleveland Cavaliers

The Markelle Fultz saga is officially over in Philadelphia. Just minutes before the deadline, the 76ers have traded him to the Orlando Magic for Jonathan Simmons, a 2020 1st round pick and a 2nd round pick.

The Magic have long needed a point guard, and Fultz could thrive for them in an environment with less pressure. For Philly, who has been very active so far, it gets him off of their hands while bringing in a solid back-up guard in Simmons and some additional picks. According to Kevin O'Connor, Philadelphia Sixers will receive the 1st and 2nd round picks.
