If the 76ers Had Just Drafted Jayson Tatum Over Markelle Fultz All Their Problems Would Be Solved

When the Orlando Magic make their eventual return to Philadelphia, the 76ers will get their first glimpse at Markelle Fultz, who struggled with a list of mysterious and serious injuries that limited him to just 33 games after being taken with the No. 1 overall pick in 2017.

Just two picks later, the Boston Celtics ended up with Jayson Tatum, a star in the making that would have plugged Philly's biggest hole as their roster is currently constructed.

A young stretch four that is automatic from behind the 3-point line? That is literally exactly what the 76ers need right now.

Luckily for Fultz, he has managed to put those struggles in Philly behind him, as he is averaging a tidy 11.7 points and 4.6 assists per game with the Magic, with his triple-double against the Lakers serving as his best career game to date.

Fultz has done an excellent job rebuilding himself in central Florida, but the 76ers could have found a young, controllable, talented way to fix their biggest issue if they had just stayed put at No. 3.

Instead they're patrolling the trade market in hopes of landing anyone who can help them improve from beyond the arc.
