If – big if – Fultz can bring back his shot and mirror the prospect that got him drafted first overall, he could be a perfect fit on the team. Josh Jackson, Mikal Bridges, Deandre Ayton, Elie Okobo, and De’Anthony Melton are all in the beginning of their development into true NBA players, and Fultz can fit that timeline perfectly.
He would put an athletic and well rounded point guard on the floor next to Booker and make a great pick and roll combo with Ayton and Booker on the wing. The Suns can continue to play fast and push the ball in transition, and they would add another talented defender into their young core.
While Fultz has not flourished on the court with Philly this season, statistically he plays much better without Ben Simmons on the court, meaning he is the primary ball handler. Simmons needs the ball in his hands to be successful, but Booker could excel playing off ball and focusing on scoring while Fultz navigates the court and sets up the offense. Fultz will be given the freedom to learn more than he could on a winning team that is focused on winning games than starting from scratch with Fultz.
