Nike Basketball today – ahead of the 2017 NBA Draft tomorrow – announces its incoming rookie class led by prospective first pick Markelle Fultz.
Fultz, largely expected to land in Philadelphia after the Sixers traded up with Boston to secure the number one overall selection in tomorrows draft, is a 6’4″ point guard with a massive 6’10” wingspan that allows him to shoot over defenders and finish easily at the rim. He’s joined by De’Aaron Fox, the Kentucky point guard who averaged almost 17 points per game in his one season in Lexington.
Fox is joined by two of his teammates; Malik Monk, who boasts a ridiculous 42-inch vertical leap, and Bam Adebayo, an imposing center with an old school natured post presence.
The incoming Nike Basketball class is rounded out by Jayson Tatum and Harry Giles of Duke University and the explosive Jonathan Issac from Florida State. Be sure to tune into the 2017 NBA Draft tomorrow to see where each of these players land.
