Markelle Fultz NBA Draft Profile
Size: 6’4 190lbs
- Court vision
- Tough, willing defender
- Stat sheet stuffer
Analysis: Markelle Fultz is a 6’4 combo guard who can play the point or off the ball if asked. He has elite level skills and athleticism with ideal size and length for the position. He has an explosive first step and can change directions better than anyone in this class. He attacks gaps in the defense and takes it hard to the rim with aggression. Finishes well through contact. Good slashing ability. Gets where he wants off the dribble and uses screens well. Court vision is elite, finding teammates with ease–passing ability is top-notch. Fultz is a stat-sheet stuffer, rebounding and blocking shots very well for a guard (points and assists come naturally). He is a tough and willing defender; shows great potential with his size, length, and quickness while jumping passing lanes.
- More consistent jump shot
- Shot selection
- Could add muscle to frame
Analysis: Watching his high school tape compared to his freshman season at Washington, his jump shot has improved, but still lacks the consistency you will look for in the NBA. Fultz doesn’t score much from midrange at this point, usually all three pointers or getting all the way to the rim. His tape shows the ability to make difficult, sometimes contested shots, but his shot selection will need to improve when he makes the jump to the pros. At 190 pounds, he could stand to add some muscle to his frame to withstand a full 82-game season.
