In exchange for Fultz, the Sixers will acquire Jonathan Simmons, a first-round and a second-round pick.
Fultz, 20, had been out indefinitely with thoracic outlet syndrome.
He played just 14 games last season because of a shoulder injury that appeared to affect his shooting mechanics and made him one of the more scrutinized players in the NBA. Fultz lost his starting spot in the rotation when the Sixers traded for Jimmy Butler. Fultz is averaging 8.2 points, 3.1 assists and 3.7 rebounds and is shooting 42 percent from the field.
