Drew Hanlen, the shooting coach Markelle Fultz has been training with, gave incredible praise to Fultz in an interview with Evan Daniels of Fox Sports 1 on Wednesday.
Hanlen, one of the most respected trainers in the NBA, said he knew Fultz was good "but he's actually better than I thought he was." When asked about Fultz's upside Hanlen said, "Star. I mean I literally think that if he's back to 100 percent he's immediately an All-Star." Hanlen has worked with many All-Stars and young players in his career and clearly believes Fultz can hit the ceiling many thought he had entering the draft. Fultz will have to battle with J.J. Redick for a starting job but he showed he can play in his limited time last year even without a shot.
