Report: Sixers Seriously Considering Trading Markelle Fultz


When it comes to the 2017 number 1 overall pick, anybody would tell you that it’s probably about time for him to move on from Philly.

Even Fultz himself is ready for a change.

Finally, it seems like the Sixers might be about done with this whole thing as well.

After searching all season long for a solution to the shoulder injury they now know doesn’t exist, Philadelphia has run out of options, and have moved on from their former top prospect.

For now, however, Fultz is still around the team as if nothing has changed except his playing time. The Sixers keep saying they will do whatever is best for him, but the situation has overshadowed the success the team has had this season.

Some sources have said that, despite the team's statements, Fultz is no longer in the Sixers' long-term plans. And they are no longer using his shoulder as an excuse for his performances.

Honestly, a Markelle Fultz trade out of Philly might be long overdue. In what has become one of the biggest stories of the season, the situation has grown toxic for the team.

The market for him is there too, so long as the Sixers deal him soon.

If they do, it would mean trading yet another member of their so-called “Process.” They struck out on Okafor, Noel, and now Fultz.

Kinda makes you wonder who’s next.
