Markelle Fultz’s free throws look particularly clunky (video)

2017 Las Vegas Summer League - Philadelphia 76ers v San Antonio Spurs

LAS VEGAS, NV - JULY 09: Markelle Fultz #7 of the Philadelphia 76ers rebounds basketballs for his teammates as they warm up before a 2017 Summer League game against the San Antonio Spurs at the Thomas & Mack Center on July 9, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fultz did not play because of a sprained ankle he suffered in a game on July 8.

When will Markelle Fultz play again for the 76ers?

Philadelphia coach Brett Brown: When he can shoot.

That day doesn’t appear any closer.

Jon Johnson of 94WIP:

When Brown gave his infamous “I think what he needs to be is able to shoot a basketball” answer, the coach also said Fultz’s free throws looked good. The issue was longer shots.

Well, these free throws do not look good. Not at all.

Why do the 76ers keep having Fultz shooting in front of media? If his confidence is shot (pun intended), these publicly scrutinized videos won’t help. Maybe he shoots better behind closed doors and testing himself with outsiders observing is his current step? That’s probably the most favorable plausible answer.

But, from what we can see, this situation keeps devolving.
