National Basketball Association trade deadline: 76ers send Fultz to Magic

Fultz's National Basketball Association career has been a nightmare so far with injuries and shooting troubles seeing him produce 0.6 win shares in 33 games.

However, Fultz has played just 33 games through two seasons while battling shoulder and wrist injuries that have affected his ability and confidence to shoot.

After trading Fultz to the Magic, Philly dropped a press release marking the trade as official but Brand did not include a message regarding the incoming or outgoing players.

With a rebuilding Magic squad that's in need of backcourt help, Fultz may be able to get healthy and hopefully fulfil his potential after being selected number one overall in the 2017 draft.

"I remember him ... just being tough and a really tough guard, " Isaac recalled.

Vaccinations skyrocket in 'anti-vaxxer' county amid measles outbreak
The Northwest cases are among three ongoing measles outbreaks in the US that sickened 79 people in January, according to the CDC. As measles cases multiply in the Vancouver-Portland region, health officials emphasize the importance of vaccinations.

Fultz did not materialize into the player the Sixers hoped. With Philadelphia going all-in with the Tobias and Jimmy Butler trades, a deal seemed inevitable before the start of next season, however. He hasn't played since November 19 while undergoing therapy for thoracic outlet syndrome, which causes compression or irritation of the nerves or blood vessels in the area between the lower neck and upper chest. "There's no question that it's a high reward", Weltman said.

Fultz, 20, was the top overall pick less than two years ago, after the 76ers traded a first-round pick to the Boston Celtics to move up two spots in the 2017 NBA Draft.

Bamba took to Instagram on Thursday night and Friday morning to playfully welcome Fultz to Orlando. "I feel for Markelle in the situation that he's been in and I'm glad that he's out of it".

"You spend one year in college and we're paid very well for what we do, but there's so much that goes along with that, " admitted Isaac, who noted that his play has taken off of late in part because he stopped "beating up on myself so much".
