  • Markelle Fultz likely to start season on bench for Sixers

    Fultz played a total of 47 minutes over just two games. When asked if Fultz will start, Brown said "I don't believe so" and noted the lack of in-game experience. Fultz is willing to accept his assignment, whether it is in the starting five or a reserve unit.

  • Markelle Fultz's NBA career will start on the Philadelphia 76ers' bench mob

    Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz will start his NBA career on Philadelphia’s second unit. Markelle Fultz’s NBA debut against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday evening will serve as an inauspicious homecoming of sorts for the D.C. native. After a preseason spent battling a mysterious shoulder issue that altered his shooting mechanics before a knee injury cost him two more exhibition games, the No. 1 overall pick will begin his rookie season on the bench for the Philadelphia 76ers.

  • Markelle Fultz to come off bench for Sixers to start season

    After a preseason where he only played in a few games due to shoulder and knee issues, and where he was clearly still finding his game in the ones he did play (after tweaking his free throw form on his own this offseason, and his whole shot went wonky shooting less than 30 percent in preseason), he will be coming off the bench to start the season, coach Brett Brown told Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia. Brown's plan is for Fultz to come off the bench to start the season. Pointed to the fact Fultz didn't played much in preseason.

  • Sixers offer glimpse of dynamic offensive potential in preseason finale

    There will be a time in the near future, perhaps even in the Sixers' regular-season opener Wednesday night in Washington, when Markelle Fultz will fit seamlessly into the offense. Until then, the Sixers showcased Friday night just how efficiently the trio of 7-foot-2 center Joel Embiid, veteran sharp-shooter JJ Redick and point-forward Ben Simmons can work together. Start with Embiid, who followed up his dominant preseason debut with a clunker on paper.
