The Philadelphia 76ers may have a suitor for Markelle Fultz.

The Detroit Pistons are reportedly interested in acquiring the 76ers guard, a league source told Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press.

Fultz would fill a void left by backup guard Ish Smith - who's currently injured - and could serve as insurance if starting point guard Reggie Jackson walks this offseason.

Fultz was diagnosed with Neurogenic Thoracic Outlet Syndrome last week and could return in three-to-six weeks.

The former No.1 overall pick hasn't played since Nov.19.

In 19 games, Fultz is averaging 8.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per contest.

Last month, the 20-year-old was reported to no longer be in the 76ers' long-term plans.
