Is Cleveland Going To Trade For Markelle Fultz?


Last year’s number one draft pick, Markelle Fultz’s saga is still as strange and controversial as it was during his rookie season.

At the beginning of said rookie season, Fultz played through a shoulder injury that apparently caused him to forget how to shoot.

But no doctor was really able to diagnose an injury, or a cause for the shooting woes and possible pain Fultz was experiencing.

Well, to be honest, no one knows what is really going on and we haven’t gotten a full explanation of what the issue really is, and likely won’t ever.. All we know is that Fultz did not shoot weirdly in college, but does now.

The Sixers seem to now be fed up with it as well and while they were reportedly reluctant to include him in talks over the summer, they seem to be now.

Fultz, who isn’t practicing or playing, would also prefer a fresh start with a new team. This is were the Cleveland Cavaliers come into play.

Sam Amico has now reported that the 76ers have spoken to the Cleveland Cavaliers about a potential deal for the guard with the broken shot. It would actually fit – a broken player goes to a broken team. In all seriousness, maybe a fresh start would be perfect for Fultz after all, especially on a team that won’t be competing for the playoffs anyways. Less pressure, more playing time and possibly more patience, even though the Sixers were patient enough.
