Markelle Fultz a player to watch at Summer League

One of the best uses of summer league is getting to know the top rookies. Plenty of eyes will be on Markelle Fultz, who the Sixers, after trading with the Celtics to move up in the draft, selected No. 1 overall this year.

Here’s what Fultz had to say about the summer league experience — of which the Vegas edition just began on Friday — according to CSN Philly: “Here everybody is skilled” … “Any given day people get blown by, everybody can pass you and everybody can score the ball. So, it just has to do with being more mental until you lock it in and just trusting my bigs when screens come, not looking back. It’s going to be a challenge every night coming out to guard whoever is in front of me, so that’s what I’m looking forward to.”
