The Philadelphia Sixers made a decision to trade point guard Markelle Fultz, the former number one draft pick that they selected in the 2017 NBA Draft. "And our moves reflect that belief". If it does not convey, the 76ers will receive second-round picks in the 2022 and 2023 draft.

Harris was the centerpiece of the deal for the Sixers. Through two seasons, the Washington product has made just 33 regular-season appearances, averaging 7.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 3.4 assists in 20.6 minutes per game.

"We had targeted him as a player we would want if he became available, and we coveted him". "The opportunity is now. We are not going to do it fast", Weltman said.

Yet despite his unproductive two years with the franchise, coach Brett Brown said on Friday he was truly sad to see Fultz leave. Philadelphia ended a five-year playoff drought last season. I think the whole league had him there.

Cardiff are "surprised" that Nantes have made the demand while recovery attempts are still being carried out. Cardiff will honor the deal but have been reluctant to make a payment until they know " all the facts ".

"It's different", he said with a laugh. "I feel for Markelle in the situation that he's been in and I'm glad that he's out of it". "I'd be lying if I didn't feel sad". That's what I'm telling the team.

The Magic, back in action on Saturday against the Bucks (9 p.m. ET - watch on fuboTV), surrendered a first-round pick (originally from the Oklahoma City Thunder), a second-round pick and Jonathon Simmons in the deal to acquire Fultz.

It's obviously a fairly hefty price tag to give up a first-round pick for a player that hasn't seen the floor a ton during his first two National Basketball Association seasons, However, Fultz showcased massive potential during his lone collegiate season and the Magic are hoping he can realize that success at the National Basketball Association level. Fultz took his official physical on Friday and is expected to re-join the Magic next week following the team's five-day, three-game road trip to Milwaukee, Atlanta and New Orleans.
