Fultz has struggled to shoot the basketball since the 76ers made him the No 1 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft out of Washington.

"There's no way you're the No. 1 pick in the world and all of a sudden your aren't able to consistently raise your arms to shoot", Fultz's agent told ESPN. The team would only say that Fultz is out indefinitely and will begin physical therapy immediately. Although the chances of Fultz ever turning into a contributing member of the Sixers seem extremely thin, there is still an outside chance the team could trade him for something of value as opposed to just releasing him this offseason.

Fultz has struggled with injuries during his time in the league and last season finished the season averaging 7.1 points, 3.8 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game.
