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.

It appears that the Chicago Bulls are souring on Jabari Parker, who will reportedly be pulled from the regular rotation, according to ESPN’s Malika Andrews.

The 23-year old Parker came to Chicago via a two-year, $40 million deal during the offseason, and marked a return to his hometown and a chance to re-ignite his career.

Now, it appears certain that the Bulls will decline his option, sending Parker back to free agency next summer.

“Jabari has been great,” Bulls head coach Jim Boylen said, according to Andrews. “He understands. Jabari wants to make it about helping the team win. And that’s what I’ve asked him to do.”

Parker has averaged 15.8 points and 7.1 rebounds for Chicago this season.
