NBA Comparison: James Harden/D'Angelo Russell

Strengths: A 6’5 combo guard with elite level skills and athleticism … Has ideal size and length for the position. Good athleticism and a solid body ... Lightning quick first step and changes directions extremely well ... Creativity is one of his trademarks ... Solid leaping ability especially off of one foot. Extremely agile with standout body control ... Attacks gaps in the defense and takes it hard to the rim with aggression. Finishes well through contact. Good slashing ability. Gets where he wants off the dribble and uses screens well … Good court vision and passing ability ... Can score for himself as well as make plays for others ... Very streaky. Has the ability to heat up quickly and go on big runs ... Good pull up jump shot from three … Plays well in transition, using his imagination and creativity well … Draws fouls and gets to the free throw line with ease … Can fill up the stat sheet in all categories ... Rebounds and blocks shots well for a guard … Tough and willing defender; shows great potential with his size, length, and quickness ... Anticipates and jumps passing lanes … Plays with great confidence … A competitor ...

Weaknesses: Jump shot has improved and he can fill it up from outside but is a bit of a streaky shooter ... For a guard with a scoring mentality, he has room to become more consistent … Doesn’t score much from midrange at this point, usually all three pointers or getting all the way to the rim ... Good at challenging the defense at the rim but doesn’t show much of a floater … Hits difficult shots but should look to improve his shot selection at the next level … Has added some strength to his body but his legs could still stand to add strength ... Has a star quality and attitude but will need to continue to develop his leadership abilities ...

Outlook: Fultz is entering his freshman season at Washington. A late bloomer who played junior varsity as a high school sophomore, but blossomed into one of the top prospects in the 2017 draft class. Fultz earned MVP of the FIBA Americas Championship in Chile to earn gold averaging 13.8 points, four rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 3.2 steals per game while shooting 54.7% from the field.
