Here is an update on fultz. His free throw shooting is looking pretty grim.

In addition, there is also this news.

Markelle Fultz and Drew Hanlen are no longer working together or on speaking terms, according to league sources. No word on why the two parted ways, but their relationship deteriorated about three weeks ago. Prior to this falling out, Fultz spent the summer training with Hanlen.
I would guess he fired him for tweeting out that fultz was hurt
Didn't he say "not healthy?"  Fultz looks like he has a neurologic disease in some of these videos.

According to ESPNís Tim Bontemps, JJ Redick will replace Markelle Fultz in tonightís starting lineup.

thats is a pretty strong starting 5. bench- not so much.

Long overdue. Curious if Fultz even stays in the rotation. Right now he is probably worse than McConnel

He's still so physically gifted and a good ballhandler. Maybe making him the backup pg will help him because that's where he actually belongs right now. But man, that free throw is awful.

also don't forget the cryptic messages about Fultz and bow there's "more to the story than injury" in the colangelo burner account tweets

Sixers 0-1 in the Jimmy Butler "Big 3" Era

Had a big 16 point lead, but gave up a 20-0 run at one point and Orlando ended on an 11-2 run to win it. Butler with 14 points in 32 minutes.

How'd Butler look tonight? Did they have spacing problems? How'd they lose so bad!

I am a fan of Butler, but I don't like the Sixers, nor would I have liked his contract if he signed on with the C's...

Philly losing to Orlando and Minnesota beating New Orleans made me smile a little today.

Man, I hope Hack-a-Fultz becomes a thing.  The comic entertainment will be legendary!

I watched half of Sixer game last night. Seems like addition of Butler diminishes Simmons impact, especially in transition. Embiid thrived. Fultz is a mess both pre and post Jimmy.

One game. Let's not react too soon about how the Sixers look with Butler.

People asked how Butler and the Sixers looked last night, I appreciate the opinion of someone who watched at least part of the game.

From a The Athletic article, 3 years ago the Sixers starting lineup was T.J.​ McConnell,​ Nik Stauskas,​ Jerami Grant, Nerlens​ Noel​ and​ Jahlil Okafor.  Now it is Simmons, Redick, Butler, Chandler and Embiid.  Night and day difference.

That Philly tank lineup was brutal.

3 years ago they still had Embiid and Simmons on the roster, so in theory the only thing that's changed is that they wasted 3 high draft picks on busts (Noel, Okafor, Fultz), traded away the Kings first/Tatum for Fultz, and traded way 2 more 1st rd selections (Saric and Covington) for the right to massively overpay Butler for the next 5 years. Not exactly stellar regardless of how much spin you put on it.
