"I think it is", Brown responded when asked if reaching the Finals is a realistic goal. If it does not convey, the 76ers will receive second-round picks in the 2022 and 2023 draft. At the time, the 19-year old Fultz set a record for youngest player in National Basketball Association history to record a triple-double.

"His ceiling is exceptionally high", Weltman said.

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.

Last year's preseason prize signing and designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton has also played right field when Judge was injured. Luckily for me, I will be right about 29 of the teams listed below.

Fultz was the top pick in the 2017 draft and began his career with high expectations. "We are not going to do it fast", Weltman said.

Fultz and his broken jumper were traded to the Orlando Magic for forward Jonathon Simmons, a first-round pick from the Oklahoma City Thunder and a second-round selection from the Cleveland Cavaliers (according to The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor).

"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. The 20-year-old has played just 33 games in almost two seasons for the 76ers, and has averaged 8.2 points and 3.7 rebounds in just 19 games this year. 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. To have the physical profile of a Markelle Fultz, that big, strapping guard who can blow by you and attack the rim and can just pressure on you in all ways is something we're all just looking for. "But right now we had a chance to add a player, wing depth, and so we had to go do it now". "Those are the kinds of guys who dominate games these days". The guard has played in only 19 games this season because of a shoulder injury. "I feel for Markelle in the situation that he's been in and I'm glad that he's out of it".
