The Philadelphia 76ers have traded Markelle Fultz to the Orlando Magic, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Thursday.

In exchange the Magic will send Philadelphia shooting guard Jonathon Simmons, the Thunder's 2020 protected first round pick and the Cavaliers 2019 second round pick.

Now granted, the move doesn't really bring a whole lot of star power back to the City of Brotherly Love, but really could we have asked for a better haul for a player who hasn't suited up since mid-November?

Sixers guard and former first overall draft pick Markelle Fultz reportedly is headed to the Magic. In his rookie year, he appeared in just 14 regular season games but never seemed quite healthy.

Fultz's representatives informed the Sixers last month that the guard would be shut down until he had been examined by specialists. Since then, he's transformed into a pretty darn good National Basketball Association player, averaging 8.5 points in about 20 minutes of action a night over his four-year career.

The 76ers also get a second-round pick this year.

Fultz was the No. 1 pick in the 2017 draft but has struggled mightily to find his rhythm and stay on the court. After a less than lackluster tenure, the Markelle Fultz tenure is finally over. In 41 games this season, Simmons is averaging 6.4 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists in a little over 20 minutes of action per game.

Fultz was the No. 1 pick in the 2017 and only played in 33 games over a season and a half for the Sixers due to multiple mysterious issues.
