Projected No. 1 Pick Markelle Fultz Signs With Agent
Markelle Fultz, the 6-foot-4 point guard from the University of Washington who is the projected No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft, has signed with agent Raymond Brothers, a source confirmed to ZAGSBLOG.
The Vertical was first to report the news.
Brothers’ other clients include Zach Randolph, Jerian Grant and Al-Farouq Aminu.
Fultz is also expected to meet this week with the Los Angeles Lakers, the source said.
