It seems the Philadelphia 76ers aren't exactly thrilled with how the situation involving Markelle Fultz played out. But they aren't upset with Fultz, at least not from the sound of it. Instead, the frustration from the team is reportedly directed at his agent, Raymond Brothers.

It's easy to see why the team would be frustrated, especially considering they've gone to fairly great lengths to support Fultz over the past year or so. Obviously, the handling of this wasn't done by the former No. 1 pick, but issues with agents can lead to trouble down the line in some instances.

How this situation plays out will be worth monitoring, but it's likely we won't receive any type of an update on Fultz in the immediate future.

Report: 76ers not rushing to trade Fultz.
Don’t count on seeing Markelle Fultz traded anytime soon, a new report says. According to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, there is no urgency within the Philadelphia 76ers’ organization to trade Fultz quickly. Part of this is down to the player’s trade value being at an all-time low, and the team is not keen on receiving little of value in exchange for the former first overall selection. In addition, some members of ownership are not enthusiastic about trading Fultz at all.
