One of the forgotten names in the NBA nowadays is Markelle Fultz. Despite being the top pick of the 2017 NBA Draft, things have not really gone well for the 20-year-old guard after joining the Sixers. He has played only a total of 33 games in Philly.

With the NBA trade deadline just days away, the Philadelphia 76ers are now trying to see who could possibly be interested in taking in the former University of Washington standout, Jon Johnson said. Seeing as how his young career has been hampered by injuries, there is no clear indication on which team would gamble on Fultz for now.

That could all change in the coming days once teams come forward to make pitches. With all the attention on Anthony Davis, a Fultz trade is not farfetched. The NBA world already got rocked with the Kristaps Porzingis trade and more are expected to follow.

Although the range of interest may pale in comparison to other high profile NBA stars, all that Fultz may need is a change of scenery. At only 20 years old, there is no doubt that the native of Upper Marlboro, Maryland can still improve his game. He has shown glimpses of brilliance, hinting that some mentoring and further training would be needed to bring him up to par with other elite NBA guards, Fox Sports reported.

However, Fultz will remain a risky investment for any team. Shoulder injuries have stopped him from progressing in the NBA. The latest on his health was that he is dealing with a thoracic outlet syndrome. This is one aspect that other teams will take into consideration.

At some point, there is no question that the Sixers will eventually trade Fultz. They already have a good rotation to work with. The Sixers are on a roll, winning 11 of their last 15 games with J.J. Reddick and T.J. McConnell manning the backcourt, the Bleacher Report reported.

In short, Fultz may have no place on the Sixers roster at all unless he is willing to come off the bench and be given limited playing time. Seeing how he is a former top pick initially scouted with potential, it may be time for him to display his wares on other teams in need of a point guard.

Some teams that could use Fultz include the Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks or even the Washington Wizards. These are teams in rebuild mode, meaning Fultz could use that to also hone his skills and carve his place in the NBA.
