Fultz trade topic of 76ers-Cavs talks

Markelle Fultz

"I have given no indication to [Sixers GM] Elton Brand or anyone else that Markelle would prefer to be traded", he told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Fultz, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 National Basketball Association draft, has lost the ability to carry out and follow through on long jump shots, and there's been internal and external debate about how much of this perplexing circumstance is physical vs. mental.

Former No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz remains inactive with a shoulder injury and there have been reports that his days with the Philadelphia 76ers might be numbered.




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

Our sources confirm that Fultz is open to a change of teams but has not made any demands and that some of what has been recently reported has come from others in his camp, and not Fultz himself.

"The possibility of Fultz moving on is understandable considering how confusing things have been with the Sixers", Pompey wrote. In turn, this points to the belief that the Sixers could potentially look for McConnell to handle a larger workload. 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. McConnell would be taking over a majority of Fultz's minutes as the 76ers backup point guard. He's also shooting just 29 percent from three and 57 percent from the free throw line. Now, sources say that Fultz had most likely played his final game with the Sixers last week.
