Markelle Fultz was smooth.
Not necessarily on the court after his Saturday night workout with the Philadelphia 76ers — although he looked good enough for the Sixers to pull the trigger on a blockbuster trade for the No. 1 pick with the Boston Celtics.
He did look polished, however, speaking to the media after his workout. He said he felt the love from Philly fans when he attended a regular season game there.
He showed up to the workout wearing a Sixers hat.
The truth is Fultz would not have worked out for Philly with the No. 3 pick if not for this trade coming. He knew the deal was done as long as his medical checked out and he didn’t try to punch a coach during the workout. Still, he said all the right things after the game — including that he wanted to go get a cheesesteak.
