Markelle Fultz showing early signs of defensive improvement

Markelle Fultz showing early signs of defensive improvement

"He can be an All-Defensive player”. That was the kind of promise the Philadelphia 76ers attached to Markelle Fultz's potential as a defensive menace before this season. Besides replacing JJ Redick in the starting lineup to give the inexperienced 20-year-old some much needed confidence and chemistry with Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, an extra dose of athletic defense was the motivation for Brett Brown to make the change. To start the season, though, that wasn’t on display whatsoever. It’s never fair to expect rookies to be positive defenders, especially off the ball when they need to...

What Does the Jimmy Butler Trade Mean for Markelle Fultz?

That should sound familiar. That’s because it was just 17 months ago that the Sixers traded considerable assets to the rival Boston Celtics to move up and draft Markelle Fultz, at the time an...

How Jimmy Butler fits with Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid

The Sixers have their third star. Now, how do they best utilize him? After a mildly disappointing 8-5 start to the 2018 season (now 8-6), the Philadelphia 76ers decided to take a gambit and trade for the disgruntled superstar, Jimmy Butler. Butler — who joined the Timberwolves last year to play with two 20-year-old potential superstars — is headed to an eerily similar situation with the Sixers and its own youthful star duo of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. Evidently, the Wiggins-Towns-Butler trio failed. Tom Thibodeau — even with prior experience in coaching Butler — wasn’t able to...
