  • Projected No. 1 Pick Markelle Fultz Attends Knicks Game

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Markelle Fultz, the 6-foot-4 point guard from the University of Washington who is the projected No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft, attended the Knicks game on Sunday to check out the triangle offense.

    The Knicks dropped to 30-51 with a 110-97 loss to Toronto and now own the NBA’s sixth-worst record. They have a 21.5 percent chance at a top-3 pick and a 6.3 percent shot at the No. 1 pick.

    Fultz, who finished the season averaging 23.2 points 5.7 rebounds, and 5.9 assists is projected to be the top pick in the draft according to DraftExpress.

    The Knicks are in need of a point guard and even if they don’t get Fultz, could still potentially land UCLA’s Lonzo Ball, Kentucky’s De’Aaron Fox or N.C. State’s Dennis Smith. DraftExpress.com currently has the Knicks taking Fox at No. 6.

    If he goes No. 1, Fultz will be the second straight No. 1 pick to have missed the Big Dance, following LSU’s Ben Simmons last year.

    “I think I had a good season,” Fultz told Scout.com. “There was some stuff I could have done better. Overall I think I did a great job of sticking with it and being a leader. I think I became a much better player. I played an all-around game, not just offense or scoring or passing.”
