76ers’ Markelle Fultz Rebuilt Shot, Now a Completely Different Player

Published

on

The Philadelphia 76ers were hoping for more out of guard Markelle Fultz during his rookie season, but an injury and a broken jump shot deflated what has a hyped up debut season for the guard.

Fultz took the offseason to work on that broken shot, spending time with shooting coach Drew Hanlen who has worked with some of the best players in the NBA, and the results have been terrific.

According to Yahoo Sports’ Jordan Schultz, “Fultz’s jumper is rebuilt and that a result, the 20-year-old guard is a completely different, vastly improved player.”

“It’s not perfect yet, but I think by the end of the summer it will be perfect, he’ll be back rolling and he’ll show people why he was the No. 1 pick,” Hanlen said, according to Philly Voice’s Kyle Neubeck.

It’s great news for Fultz and the Sixers as they prepare to build off their impressive turnaround season.

“I’m in a great situation,” Rozier said, according to NBC Sports Boston. “My team felt it wasn’t good for me to sign an extension right now. It opens my options a little bit, but I’m focused on what’s happening right now.”

The New York Knicks are not expected to give Kristaps Porzingis a contract extension before the end of Monday’s deadline, which will make the budding franchise player a restricted free agent next summer, according to ESPN’s Ian Begley.

Porzingis’ season-ending torn ACL and a desire to create as much cap flexibility so they can be major players in next summer’s free agency appear to be the main factors in the team coming to this decision.
