Markelle Fultz would reportedly like for his time with the Philadelphia 76ers to come to an end, according to a new report by The Athletic.

Fultz, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, has had a tumultuous start to his professional career. He's had some issues with his shoulder and serious problems with his shooting ability.

Now, The Athletic is reporting that Fultz would prefer to start over somewhere else.

"Markelle Fultz is having a wrist issue examined next week and would prefer a move to a new team," The Athletic reports.

Fultz, 20, is averaging 8 points, 3 assists and 3 rebounds a game for the Sixers so far this season.

Philadelphia is 12-7 on the season.
