NBA Commerce Rumors: Cavs Inquired About Markelle Fultz

Cleveland Cavaliers: 3 reasons they should trade for Markelle Fultz

Cleveland Cavaliers: 3 reasons they should trade for Markelle Fultz

The former No. 1 overall pick has been playing with an apparent injury in his right wrist area that has adversely affected his ability to shoot.

Fultz is now idle while awaiting a visit with a shoulder specialist but has lost ground in the rotation to T.J. McConnell, who is serving as the primary backup point guard to Ben Simmons. The Athletic reported last week that Fultz has been dealing with a wrist injury that is affecting his ability to shoot, but Sheridan said Monday that there is skepticism among National Basketball Association teams that his injuries are truly physical.

In recent weeks, the Sixers stopped listening to trade overtures on McConnell, sources said, a reflection of the fact that the organization knows it'll be leaning more heavily on McConnell now.

Fultz has been the subject of trade rumors and it was reported Saturday that he was no longer in Philadelphia's long-term plans.

Jose Mourinho smashes drinks holder, slams critics after Young Boys win
Jose Mourinho made some odd selection choices against Young Boys, with Fellaini, Nemanja Matic and Phil Jones all starting. Sanchez, who came on for Pogba in the second half of the draw against Palace, fails to make the squad.

Should the Sixers and Markelle Fultz consider parting ways?

The addition of Jimmy Butler has given them the third star they needed Fultz to be and allows them to move on from the distraction he's caused. And if a team comes to the Sixers with a deal that's even remotely tempting, then they probably wouldn't hesitate to take it. Realistically, it looks like Fultz played his final minutes with the Sixers last week, but we'll see if anything changes in the meantime. He is averaging 8.2 points and 3.1 assists while shooting 41.9 percent from the floor in 19 games this season, including 15 starts.

In reality, it was likely Philadelphia would attempt to get a late first-round pick for Fultz or a player on an expiring contract, according to Pompey.

T.J. McConnell appears to be remaining with the 76ers for the rest of the season. McConnell can be a free agent this summer.
