Report: Sixers to interview Markelle Fultz

By: Jesse Larch, Sports Talk Philly Staff

The top prospect in this summer's NBA draft, Markelle Fultz, is said to be interviewing with the 76srs at the upcoming NBA Draft Combine being held in Chicago, as first reported by Liberty Ballers.

Fultz is one of the only top prospects attending the combine, with most of the other projected lottery picks choosing to bypass the event. 

It comes as no surprise that the Sixers will interview Fultz. The Sixers hold two selections in the top-10 that could give the team one of the top three selections in the NBA Draft, where Fultz is expected to be selected.  

Fultz has already experienced a Sixers game first hand, when the Sixers were blown out by the Brooklyn Nets at the Wells Fargo Center late last season. This meeting will allow the Sixers to make a better impression on the heralded guard. 

Fultz is also expected to interview with the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks, and the Sacramento Kings, according to Jeff Goodman of ESPN.
