Former Sixers guard Markelle Fultz is hosting a basketball camp at his old high school before ever playing a game with the Orlando Magic.

UPDATE [2:48 p.m.] — The Sixers have reportedly traded former No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz to the Orlando Magic. And the return, which includes Jonathan Simmons and some draft picks, seems to be better than most expected.

More to come... 


FROM EARLIER...

Deadline Day came a day early for Sixers fans when they woke up on Wednesday to find out that the team had acquired Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic and Mike Scott from the Clippers in exchange for Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala, and a pair of future draft picks. 

But that doesn't mean Elton Brand and Co. are done just yet. There's still a few hours left before the NBA Trade Deadline expires as the young Sixers GM looks to add some bench depth after upgrading his starting unit a day earlier. Also, there could be a former No. 1 overall pick on the move — Markelle Fultz.

On last night's ESPN deadline special, Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe discussed the possibility of the Sixers moving Fultz.

And they don't seem to be alone in the belief that Fultz will be elsewhere by the end of the day.
