Markelle Fultz is ready to come back to the league to try to have a good tenure the Orlando Magic next season, and he’s already working on improving his game. According to Josh Robbins of The Athletic, Fultz is set to be a full participant in the Orlando Magic’s training camp beginning Oct. 1.
“We don’t have any restrictions in place right now (for Fultz) for training camp,” president of basketball operations Jeff Weltman said Wednesday, per John Denton of the team’s official site. “… Obviously, he hasn’t been through this in a long time and it’s new terrain, but for now there are no restrictions.”
Things are looking really good for the Magic and Fultz, as the team has released footage of the point guard and his jumper, creating more expectations around the former No. 1 overall pick. The video features plenty of shots of Fultz running, working out and, be ready, taking jump shots. That’s how good it looks.

Fultz was traded from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Magic in February but did play a single game with his new team while recovering from thoracic outlet syndrome. He has played just 33 games in two seasons since being taken with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 draft.
A lot has been said about the 21-year-old, who hasn’t had the best career in the NBA so far. Nevertheless, the Magic have remained patient with him, hoping to enjoy his quality when he’s healthy and ready to go.
