The 76ers traded up in the 2017 draft with the rival Boston Celtics to grab Fultz with the first pick, a move that has failed in hindsight as Boston got arguably the best player in the draft with the No. 3 pick in Jayson Tatum.
With his trade Wednesday for Tobias Harris, Brand clarified the Sixers' window. He's owed $5.7 million next season if the Sixers decide to keep him. Outside of one game where he recorded a triple-double, Fultz offered nearly nothing to the team during his time with the Sixers. His present isn't especially clear either.
Fultz played in the 76ers' first 19 games this season, but he and his camp made a decision to sit out and rehab his shoulder that they claimed was never 100 percent. He may very well forge a good National Basketball Association career for himself, but it made little sense for Brand to bargain that he'd do so in Philadelphia. One of the Sixers' biggest needs is a backup point-guard who can defend and knock down open shots, and take some of the burden off of T.J. McConnell. Both present much more immediate value than Fultz - his current value, sitting on the bench in street clothes, is zero. After a less than lackluster tenure, the Markelle Fultz tenure is finally over.
The Sixers get Jonathan Simmons who's an excellent perimeter defender, but isn't a great 3-point shooter.
