Markelle Fultz wants to leave the Philadelphia 76ers and the 76ers seem to want to get rid of him since they are in a “win now” mode. It appears the rebuilding Cleveland Cavaliers are the first team to reach out to Philly about a potential trade.
Sam Amico reported the following:
The Cleveland Cavaliers have spoken to the Philadelphia 76ers about the availability of second-year guard Markelle Fultz, league sources told Amico Hoops on Sunday.
Kyle Korver is one player the 76ers would love to have on the roster for shooting. Cleveland has some other respected veterans like George Hill and JR Smith on the roster, but it remains to be seen what Philadelphia wants for the failed top draft pick.
