Markelle Fultz Will Start in Preseason Opener
One of the biggest unknowns about the 2018-2019 Sixers season is Markelle Fultz. The mystery that surrounds him, and his jump-shot has Sixers fans waiting to see what kind of player he will be.
Tonight fans will get their first look at the 2017 No. 1 overall pick, and he will be in the starting line-up in the preseason opener, with J.J. Redick heading to the bench.
Fultz's shot got a total make-over after working with Drew Hanlen this offseason and at the teams training camp.
Coach Brett Brown indicated to reporters before the game that Fultz will have a shot to win the starting job, but that nothing is set in stone at this point, and that both players handled the situation well.
