Report: Celtics might not take Markelle Fultz at No. 1

  Report: Celtics might not take Markelle Fultz at No. 1 It’s been assumed by many for a while now that Washington point guard Markelle Fultz will be the No. 1 pick of the 2017 NBA Draft . But maybe that’s a bit hasty, according to a report by Chad Ford of ESPN, who notes the Boston Celtics have a handful of players they’re considering. Per Ford, Fultz is very much still in the mix. However, the Celtics are also considering Lonzo Ball, Josh Jackson, De’Aaron Fox and Jayson Tatum.This is an interesting report for a couple reasons.

According to what ESPN’s Michael Eaves tweeted on Sunday, some members of the Celtics organization were not impressed by Fultz ’s workout and pointed to a perceived lack of explosiveness on the part of the former Washington star.

The Boston Celtics seemed to do a quick 180 on top prospect Markelle Fultz, and now we may have a bit of an idea why.

According to what ESPN’s Michael Eaves tweeted on Sunday, some members of the Celtics organization were not impressed by Fultz’s workout and pointed to a perceived lack of explosiveness on the part of the former Washington star.

Fultz seemed signed, sealed, and delivered to Boston at No. 1 overall for months. Initially, he scheduled a workout with only the Celtics. But Boston abruptly agreed to a blockbuster deal with the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday, swapping the top pick for the No. 3 selection and an additional first-rounder.

It’s hard to believe that a single workout was enough to change the Celtics’ mind on Fultz, so there may be some rationalizing for their fanbase in play here. But given the sudden turn of events, this serves as an explanation that will probably suffice, at least for now.
