76ers finally trade Markelle Fultz, send him to Orlando Magic

And more importantly for the Philadelphia 76ers, he's a guard sized guard who can cover opposing guards.

Nikola Mirotic was traded to the Bucks from the Pelicans, 76ers traded former first overall pick Markelle Fultz to the Magic.

Fultz played in the 76ers' first 19 games this season, but he and his camp chose to sit out and rehab his shoulder that they claimed was never 100 percent.

The selection of Fultz won't turn out to be a complete wash for the 76ers, but the return of a first-round pick from a projected playoff team, a second-round pick and Simmons pales in comparison to the haul of the No. 3 overall pick and additional first-round pick they sent the Celtics to select him. There's a definite possibility that he's never able to put everything together again, but he still has all sorts of talent.

Wizards deal Otto Porter to Bulls for Jabari Parker and Bobby Portis
Portis, 23, is in his fourth year out of Arkansas and is averaging 14.1 points and 7.3 rebounds in 22 games this season. Parker was in and out of Chicago's rotation, averaging 14.3 points and 6.2 rebounds in 39 games.

The Cavaliers will also continue to look elsewhere as they seek to rebuild a team that now stands at 11-43 on the year. In Cleveland's fourth in-season trade, the Cavs have now gathered two first-round and six second-round picks.

AOC says being left off climate crisis committee not a snub
The Tampa Bay Times reports that the following Democrats were selected to the new climate change committee: "Reps". Ed Markey (D-Mass.) are teasing the ambitious deal and set to unveil it at a Thursday afternoon press conference.

Though Fultz became the first teenager in National Basketball Association history to record a triple-double, doing so on the final game of the 2017-18 regular season, he's also struggled to find his shooting stroke. In his rookie year, he appeared in just 14 regular season games but never seemed quite healthy.

Fultz has shot just 41.4 percent from the field and 26.7 percent from 3-point range in 33 career games. The 29-year-old has averaged 8.5 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 1.9 assists through four seasons split between the Magic and San Antonio Spurs. Redick, Tobias Harris, or Jimmy Butler, as they will all be in line for new deals.

It might be somewhat obvious at this point, but the best way to characterize Fultz's future with the team might be "wait and see".
