Two teams believed to be top contenders to trade for Markelle Fultz

  • Markelle Fultz

As for those visits, ESPN reported Monday that Fultz would see a specialist in NY on Monday and again mid-week. The team's 2017 No. 1 pick is set to see a shoulder specialist this week and will remain off the court until that point.

Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and the Philadelphia Inquirer's Keith Pompey, Fultz will be seeing several specialists this week about the shoulder injury.

Philadelphia has "stopped listening" to offers for the 26-year-old guard, according to a report from ESPN, which cites unidentified league sources. Not much was revealed other than that, but it was the first major report of another team being interested in Fultz. "For now, however, Fultz is still around the team as if nothing has changed except his playing time".

"Some sources have said that, despite the team's statements, Fultz is no longer in the Sixers' long-term plans". There have also been trade rumors swirling around Fultz over the past week or so. In 19 games this season, Fultz is averaging 8.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game while shooting 41.9 percent from the field, 28.6 percent from beyond the arc and 56.8 percent from the free-throw line.

The addition of Jimmy Butler has given them the third star they needed Fultz to be and allows them to move on from the distraction he's caused.

After that game, when questioned about his decision to turn to T.J. McConnell over Fultz during the second half, coach Brett Brown didn't commit to either player as his backup point guard.
