It finally happened.

The Sixers have reportedly traded former No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz to the Orlando Magic for Jonathon Simmons, a first-round draft pick, and a second-round draft pick, according to multiple reports.

And here are a few more miscellaneous Fultz takes, because there are just so many:
