Consensus No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz will reportedly work out for the Sacramento Kings on Sunday according to Ailene Voisin of the Sacramento Bee.
To this date, we only know that Fultz has worked out for the Celtics. He is essentially a lock to go in the top three so it’s interesting that he has agreed to work out for the Kings, who currently sit at No. 5.
Fultz had averages of 23.2 points, 5.7 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 blocks in 35.7 minutes per game (25 games) with Washington last season. He hit 50.2 percent shooting from the field and 41.3 percent from three.
The Kings are reportedly interested in moving up in the draft, and bringing in someone of Fultz’s caliber could add weight to those rumors.
Hearing late tonight that possible overall No.1 draft pick Markelle Fultz is working out for Kings on Sunday. Media availability unclear …
