NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Press Conference James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

Markelle Fultz made his debut as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers in Utah Summer League action Monday night, and didn’t take long to make his impact.

On the first possession of the game, Fultz took a handoff, dribbled into the paint, then caught Jaylen Brown with an up-and-under move to score a beautiful first field goal.

He quickly followed that up with a straight away three off another ball screen.

Thus far, the Sixers are experimenting with him playing on ball, and next to Larry Drew II.

On defense, Fultz also had two blocks in his first stint as a pro, something he did very well while he was at Washington.

So in Fultz’s first six minutes as a pro, he tallied five points on 2-3 shooting, one rebound and one block. I think Sixers fans can get very used to watching him play, and Celtics fans will quickly wish they could too.
