Markelle Fultz, Drew Hanlen No Longer on Speaking Terms
One of the biggest offseason stories surrounding the Sixers was Markelle Fultz workouts with trainer Drew Hanlen. Hanlen would periodically post videos on social media, and even proclaimed that Fultz would be an all-star.
But apparently their working relationship is over.
According to Alex Kennedy of Hoops Hype, citing league sources, the two parties are no longer on speaking terms, after a falling out that occurred about three weeks ago.
The hope would be that Fultz would be over the mysterious shooting issues that plagued him during his rookie season, but so far he has been virtually unwilling to shoot with any regularity.
Fultz is shooting 42.2 percent from the field and just 30.8 from beyond the arc and scoring 9.3 points, grabbing 3.9 rebounds and dishing out 3.4 assists per game in 24.3 minutes per game.
Hopefully this free-throw is not a result of his falling out with Hanlen.
