Markelle N'Gai Fultz famed as Markelle Fultz is an American professional basketball player for the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association. He started his career from his high school. He played college basketball for the Washington Huskies before joining the NBA. He was selected to the third-team All-American and first-team All-Pac-12 during that period. He entered the draft the following year and was selected first overall by the 76ers. He was named Player of the Year in the highly-competitive Washington Catholic Athletic Conference. He led his high school club to the Maryland Private School League Championship as a senior and he was selected for the McDonald's All-American game. He posted 10 points, six rebounds, and four assists at the McDonald's All-American Game. For the 2018-2019 season, head coach Brett Brown named Fultz the starting shooting guard (SG) over veteran JJ Redick. On November 20, 2018, his agent Raymond Brothers announced Fultz would not participate in practice or games until a shoulder injury was evaluated; his ailment was later clarified as thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS), the neurogenic type of the disorder which “affects nerves between the neck and shoulder resulting in abnormal functional movement and range of motion, thus severely limiting Markelle’s ability to shoot a basketball”. He was the FIBA Americas Under-18 Championship MVP after helping the USU-18 team win gold at the 2016 FIBA Championship in Chile.
