Markelle Fultz Trade Rumors: Hawks, Magic Talking with 76ers Before Deadline

Bleacher Report

Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz hasn’t played since November, but teams around the NBA remain interested in him heading into Thursday’s trade deadline.

On Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported the Atlanta Hawksand Orlando Magic have asked about the 2017 No. 1 overall draft pick, via Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice.

“There’s a real possibility he’s played his last game with the Sixers,” Wojnarowski said.

The 20-year-old has been out with a shoulder injury and has played only 33 regular-season games in his career. He also has yet to be be cleared for basketball activity, per Derek Bodner of The Athletic. 

Fultz doesn’t do much to help Philadelphia, which is clearly in win-now mode after acquiring Tobias Harris and others in a six-player tradeWednesday. With a starting lineup that already includes Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler, the Sixers have enough talent to contend for a championship this season.
