Jalen Rose gives Markelle Fultz advice on what to do to revive his NBA career.

jj

Exciting news came from Orlando today — the Orlando Magic have exercised the 2020-21 option for Markelle Fultz, the former 1st pick of the 2017 NBA Draft.

They will pay him approximately 12 million dollars two seasons from now which means he'll be in the Orlando Magic uniform, under contract for at least two more years.

The deadline for exercising that option is October 31, so Orlando had plenty of time left to see Fultz in action, at least through preseason, but they decided to pick him up now. What does that mean? On the one hand, it means the Magic are sold on Fultz' ability to play and that he has adequately healed. Otherwise, why exercise the option? On the other hand, it could also mean that the Magic are a crap organization if Fultz doesn't grow into the role we all want to see him grow into.
