Magic's Markelle Fultz, former No. 1 pick, gets first start vs. Nuggets

Markelle Fultz started for the first time for the Orlando Magic on Saturday, replacing D.J. Augustin at point guard.

The first overall pick by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2017 NBA draft, Fultz was traded to the Magic in February but did not play last season for Orlando.

Augustin had started 115 straight games for the Magic, going back to Feb. 8, 2018.

Fultz had nine points, two assists, one rebound and three steals in 25 minutes in the Magic's 91-87 home loss to the Denver Nuggets.
