Markelle Fultz Net Worth $25 Million
Raised in Upper Marlboro, he is the younger of two children, brought up by a single mother, Ebony. Having found his solace in basketball, Keith Williams took him under his wing, serving as Markelle’s mentor through the years. Markelle went to DeMatha Catholic High School but didn’t play in his first year, but then became one of the best players in his class, and was named as the 3rd best player in the USA by Scout.com.
After finishing high school, Fultz was recruited by the University of Washington, and played for the Washington Huskies men’s basketball team, before declaring for the 2017 NBA Draft. In his only season at Washington, Markelle was named to the First-team All-Pac-12 and Third-team All-American, thanks to averaging 23.2 points, 5.9 assists, and 5.7 rebounds per game, this despite the poor performance of the team overall, with a 9-22 season record.
He was chosen by the Philadelphia 76ers as the first overall pick after the 76ers front office swapped draft positions with the Boston Celtics. He signed his first professional contract on the 8th July, worth $20 million over five years, which certainly established the basis of his net worth. In addition to his club contract, Markelle also signed a deal with Nike, which has also contributed to his net worth.
When it comes to his performance on the court, Markelle was off to a solid start, and the 76ers hoped for a successful season with him, Ben Simmons, and Joel Embid leading the franchise to a play-off appearance, however, he has been sidelined since discovering that he was suffering from a scapular muscle imbalance. He had shooting problems in his first few games, making only 33% of his shots, without even trying to make a three-pointer. He is now waiting for a complete recovery to get back onto the basketball court.
When it comes to speaking about the personal life of this budding basketball star, unfortunately, Markelle tends to keep his most intimate details hidden from the public’s eye, therefore, no reliable information is available about him in the media.
