Markelle Fultz Leaves The Sixers And There Are Lawyers Involved


The weird saga of Markelle Fultz just got weirder.

On the advice of his lawyer, the 2017 number one pick has left the Philadelphia 76ers and will see a shoulder specialist.


Fultz has struggled mightily with his shot during his brief NBA career, displaying form like this:


There's been much debate as to whether his shooting problems are physical or mental, and now it seems Fultz and his team no longer trust the 76ers and their medical staff to decide.

Fultz had been used as the 76ers backup point guard since their trade for Jimmy Butler pushed him out the starting lineup. He was benched for TJ McConnell, the previous back up point guard, during last night's win over the Phoenix Suns, and that's what seemed to have sparked this unusual announcement.

Of course, there are jokes.
