Sixers' head coach Brett Brown thinks Markelle Fultz will 'have a hell of a year."
“I feel just so excited to see him play NBA basketball and show why he was the first player chosen in the NBA draft,” Brown said. “And I have tremendous optimism and confidence that he’s going to have a hell of a year next year,' Brown said. Fultz had the "yips" last season along with a shoulder issue that kept him out for most of the season. He returned for the last 10 games of the regular season and averaged 7.6 points, 3.5 boards, 4,6 assists 0.9 steals, 42.9 percent shooting and 44.4 percent from the stripe in 17.7 minutes per game. The young guard will be a risky draft choice, but should be given plenty of opportunity to prove himself this season. Draft him in the mid to late rounds, but don't expect a lot of production early on.
