Markelle Fultz could be on the move before he ever gets a chance to show his improved jump shot. The Philadelphia 76ers reportedly held internal talks about sending Fultz as well as the No. 10 and No. 26 picks to move into the top 5 to select Michael Porter Jr., according to sources.
“The Philadelphia 76ers had internal discussions about packaging the No. 10 and 26 picks, along with former No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz, to move into the top five, league sources told The Athletic. The target was Porter during these discussions. However, that thinking dampened with Porter’s back remaining a major question mark. If JJ Redick leaves in free agency, Fultz is the favorite to start at shooting guard.”
Philly reportedly back away from that strategy due to Porter’s recurring back issues. Fultz will likely start at shooting guard next season if JJ Redick leaves in NBA Free Agency.
