Markelle Fultz's Free-Throw Form: Not Great

The No. 1 overall pick has been changing his shot form.

Markelle Fultz has been working on his shooting form heading into his first NBA season.

The No. 1 overall pick showed off his new free-throw shot on Monday night, as the Sixers played the Celtics in a preseason game.

It looks...not great.

Fultz went 2 of 5 from the line shooting like this:

That looks like the shooting form of a 7-footer who shoots 50 percent from the line. It's not exactly what you want from your No. 1 overall pick point guard. Here's what it looked like during his one season at Washington.

It's not perfect, but it's certainly better than what he's doing now. He shot 65 percent from the free-throw line that season.
