• Biography

Markelle Fultz is known as an American professional basketball player for the Orlando Magic of the National Basketball Association. He is most famous for being a number one pick in the NBA Draft.

Background and Age

Markelle N'Gai Fultz was born on May 29, 1998 in Upper Marlboro, MD. He is Catholic by religion. His mom's name is Ebony Fultz. He went to DeMatha Catholic High School and later he went to Washington College.

Fultz played college basketball for the Washington Huskies before joining the NBA. He was chosen to the third-group All-American and first-group All-Pac-12 during that period. He was named Player of the Year in the highly-aggressive Washington Catholic Athletic Conference.

Relationships

Fultz has been in a romantic relationship with his delightful sweetheart named Kaila Charles since 2016.

Career and Net Worth

Fultz was selected as the first overall pick by the Philadelphia 76ers. Fultz turned into the most youthful player in NBA history to record a triple-double, breaking the record set by Lonzo Ball prior to that season. On February 2019, he was exchanged to the Orlando Magic in return for Jonathon Simmons and two draft picks. He was traded because Philly no longer had faith that he would get his confidence back.

In their 2019 season-opening triumph over the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Orlando Magic urgently required a flash to help them win. The starters turned out lazy, missing defensive assignments, and battling to start their offense. Fultz, seeing his first regular-season activity for the Magic, came in and gave them the shock they required.

In November 2019, the basketball press highlighted that Markelle Fultz has bee making plays and scoring huge scores for Orlando. The Washington Wizards were going to set out on daring Markelle Fultz to utilize his broken jumper. Halfway through the first quarter, Nikola Vucevic brought the ball out to one side, gave the ball to Fultz and set a pick, yet Washington guard Isaiah Thomas right away sagged a few stages off. Fultz set his feet and launched a three. After one minute, nearly precisely the same situation happened in an early shot clock opportunity. From that point forward, Wizards' guards started to turn out and challenge Fultz and that opened paths for what Fultz truly needs to do, drive to the basket. He was in assault mode for the remainder of the night. Fultz had his best NBA game, scoring a career-high 19 points on 8-of-10 shooting, topped off by this take and dunk to seal the success.
