The Athletic has reported that if J.J. Redick leaves in free agency then Markelle Fultz is the favorite to start at shooting guard.
Fultz's name has been tossed around in trade rumors but the Sixers still believe in the young guard. He showed late last year that he is a good player and through more development he can still hit his potential. With Kawhi Leonard available in a trade and the rumors of the team wanting to move up from their tenth overall pick, Fultz will likely be mentioned in many hypothetical trades. If he is with the team and J.J. Redick is not next season then Fultz may get his chance to prove himself.
