"I think it is", Brown said when asked if reaching the NBA Finals is a realistic goal.

The 76ers acquired Jonathan Simmons in the deal for Fultz along with a couple of draft picks and now have one of the more formidable lineups in the Eastern Conference.

Despite a lot of the negativity surrounding Fultz, coach Brett Brown seemingly never said a bad thing about the young player and said he felt sad when he learned he was traded. "There's no question that it's a high reward", 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. In addition to having a familiarity with the 21-year-old Isaac - the No. 6 pick from the same 2017 NBA Draft that Fultz headlined - the second-year guard is close friends with Bamba, who is also 20 years old.

As for Isaac, he is just hopeful that Fultz can get back to being the dynamic playmaker that he was at the high school, AAU and college levels years earlier for Orlando.

"We believe we are in position to contend now", Brand said, "and our moves reflect that belief".

He has averaged 8.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists in his 19 appearances in 2018-19. "But right now we had a chance to add a player, wing depth, and so we had to go do it now". "Getting him through that, it's our job organizationally - from the performance directors and the coaches - to put him in a spot to succeed".

"His size, his skill level, his vision, his competitiveness", Weltman said. "Those are the kinds of guys who dominate games these days". "But I would feel ..." Moving on from Fultz capped a 20-month saga that saw him play in only 33 regular-season games and spend much of his time away from the team while dealing with repeated issues with his shooting form.
