ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski has reported the the Orlando Magic have traded wingman Jonathan Simmons, and two draft picks for project point guard Markelle Fultz
The Magic are sending Simmons and a first-round pick (via the Thunder), and a second-round pick (via the Cavaliers).
Simmons was solid player for the Magic in their 2017-18 season, but fell off in this production after off-season wrist surgery. He was averaging 6.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 20.6 minutes over 41 games with the Magic this season.
Fultz, a number one pick for the Sixers, has been a frustration for Philadelphia. He has struggled to find his shooting rhythm as a starter and was sidelined with a nerve condition in his shoulder and neck since November.
He played in just 33 games with the Sixers over the past two seasons with averages of 7.7 points on 41.4-percent shooting from the floor, 3.4 rebounds and 3.4 assists.
The Magic see him as a long-term project and like chances w/ Steve Clifford and his staff getting to work with him.
