Magic's Jeff Weltman on Picking Up Markelle Fultz Option: "No-Brainer"


It wasn't quite the start to his career that Markelle Fultz was expecting but he's getting a second opportunity with the Magic after the 76ers traded him after less than two seasons.

Fultz didn't play a single minute with Orlando after he was traded and the Magic have taken a very patient approach getting him ready to play.

Wednesday, some media members were invited to check out Fultz on the practice court.

The Magic picked up Fultz's option about two weeks ago, a move that Magic President Jeff Weltman called a "no-brainer". Weltman explained what made the decision so easy in picking up Fultz's option and why the team has kept him out of the spotlight, really since joining the team.
