Markelle Fultz will start for J.J. Redick on Friday vs. Melbourne United.
Wow, this is a nice surprise to kick off the 2018-19 preseason. Coach Brett Brown said there’s also a possibility Fultz starts in the regular season and he’s had talks with both Markelle and Redick, and both are onboard with whatever their roles are this season. Futlz will also probably get some minutes at point guard when Ben Simmons sits, and Redick will come off the bench in this one. Fultz will now get to show how much his summer work with shot guru Drew Hanlen has paid off. If Markelle shines, prepare for his ADP to shoot up the draft board. Stay tuned for a post-game report.
