It's safe to say that the former top pick of the 2017 NBA Draft Markelle Fultz's career has not gone as planned. After two injury-riddled seasons in Philadelphia, he was shipped to Orlando for Jonathan Simmons, who currently remains a free agent in early August.That being said, Fultz's jump-shot appears to be in good form and finally on the mend (???), as a video surfaced Wednesday of the third-year guard knocking down a step-back jumper.
While a change of scenery could do wonders for a person of Fultz's talent, the proof will have to come in the pudding during the regular season. It almost feels as though a new video of Markelle Fultz's revamped jump-shot surfaces every offseason, only to disappoint viewers during the regular season.
After watching Fultz play with such confidence at the University of Washington, it's tough to see a guy who hasn't quite figured things out in the NBA. Here's hoping that the promising young point guard can stay on the court this season.
