The year was 2016, and Isaac - a long-armed forward who was blossoming nearly daily with loads of talent of his own - faced off against the 6-foot-4, 200-pound Fultz.

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. "He could shoot the ball, handle it, big body, athleticism".

The Philadelphia 76ers drafted Markelle Fultz first overall less than two years ago.

Fultz had a tumultuous time in Philadelphia where he dealt with a hitch in his jump shot, a couple of injuries and a fair amount of underachievement.

The first-round pick originally belonged to the Oklahoma City Thunder and is top-20 protected. That pick turned into Jayson Tatum for Boston, who will either be the face of the Celtics franchise in the next few years or the main piece of a franchise-altering trade. "He had a fresh start, another opportunity". Fultz was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, a condition that impacts the nerves between the neck and shoulder.

"His ceiling is exceptionally high", Weltman said.

"We look forward to getting him in here, getting our arms around him, understanding everything he's dealing with and getting him through it, " Weltman said. Getting him through that, it's our job organizationally, from the performance directors to the coaches to all of us to put him in a position to succeed. However long that takes, that's how long it will take.

"His size, his skill level, his vision, his competitiveness", Weltman said.

The Markelle Fultz era in Philadelphia has come to an end. "Those are the guys who can dominate games these days".

Before worrying about that, though, the Sixers have more pressing matters to deal with - namely, sorting out how these players are going to fit together.

Fultz began his career with high expectations. He only played 33 professional games over the last two seasons for the Sixers.

With Mohamed Bamba and Jonathan Isaac selected in the lottery in the 2018 and 2017 drafts respectively, Orlando have been desperate to add a young point guard. "And he's got all the ingredients, not just the physical abilities, to blossom". It's understandable Brown feels he never had the chance to coach Fultz either, considering he barely took the court. "But right now we had a chance to add a player, wing depth, and so we had to go do it now". I felt sad for that. "He gets healthy, he'll be back to his old self, playing the game that he loves". And, in time, that will only make the Magic a more unsafe team, he added.
