Although it’s considered a foregone conclusion that Fultz will be one-and-done at Washington and will not play with Michael Porter Jr. (ranked first in the class of 2017 by ESPN) next season, he said no decision has been made just yet. “I still haven’t decided, and I’m not worried about it or thinking about it right now,” he said. “I’m just trying to help this team improve and be the best point guard I can be in college. I’ll make a decision after the season.”

ESPN polled 15 NBA executives earlier this month, and 12 of them said they would select Fultz as the top point guard — over Lonzo Ball (UCLA), Dennis Smith Jr. (NC State) and De’Aaron Fox (Kentucky). “He’s not just the top point guard,” one NBA general manager told ESPN. “He’s the top player — period. I’d be very surprised if he doesn’t come off the board first.” “It’s still somewhat open,” another GM added. “But Fultz is the leader for the No. 1 pick, at least right now.”

While the aforementioned NBA officials differed slightly on who those No. 1 candidates are, they rated two players slightly above the rest of the No. 1 contenders: point guards Markelle Fultz of Washington and Lonzo Ball of UCLA. “There’s nothing Fultz can’t do if he want to,’’ a veteran scout said of Fultz, while a scouting director added, “His defense is shaky but he’s still the most complete player in the draft.’’ As for Ball, a front office executive “He has everything – except strength. He needs to get stronger and I’m sure he will.’’ And, another veteran personnel director said, “He’s the best passer in the draft; his court vision is special.’’
