Markelle Fultz Scouting Report

Markelle Fultz remains the top player in the 2017 draft class, despite the fact Washington has struggled badly this season. The six-foot-four combo guard has shown an exceptionally polished skill-set for someone his age and has the physical abilities to be expected to develop into a good defender in time, though he is not one at the moment.
