This is seriously looking like a repeat of the trade of the pick that turned into Joe Barely Cares for McHale and Parrish. Well, that is IF the pick that conveys from Philly turns out to an All Star. So yeah, I'm getting a little ahead of myself.
I recall Fultz playing and shooting pretty well in summer league before he was shut down.
Another video of Him shooting (he's #20 in the back court)https://twitter.com/PompeyOnSixers/status/951467972660547585Its not an isolated incident. Shot is messed up
Definitely one of the more bizarre draft stories I can recall in a while.We hear a lot about physical evaluations of draft prospects in the run-up to the draft, but if there are extensive mental and psychiatric evaluations, we don't hear about them.Fultz may be a situation where the talent is great but the kid's head is a mess. That tends to derail careers, though guys like that sometimes find a way back (see: Michael Beasley).

My guess is he was legitimately hurt and sometime during that down time he tinkered with his shot (maybe because he was hurt or maybe not) and messed it up and hasn't gotten the ship righted yet. I suspect he does at some point and that immense scoring potential he showed in college he will show again in the NBA.
