The Phoenix Suns would have been the perfect team to put Markelle Fultz to good use. But it seems that earlier rumors have been put to rest with reports that the first overall pick of the 2017 NBA Draft is not the solution to the Suns’ point guard problems.

According to John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7, the Suns have allegedly no interest and desire to take Fultz in. The Suns do have a hole in the point guard position with rookie second-round pick Elie Okobo alternating with De’Anthony Melton for quarterbacking duties. He inherited the starting point guard when previous starting point guard Isaiah Canaan was waived last month.

Fultz landing in Phoenix was hinted previously, part of a three-team trade that would have also involved NBA vet Trevor Ariza. The Los Angeles Lakers are in play, seen as the team that would likely end up with the 33-year-old veteran.

This turn of events changes the outlook for all players concerned. For Fultz, his next stop remains uncertain, but there are other teams where he could fit in. One team that showed interest was the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, that too changed when the Cavs sent Kyle Korver to the Utah Jazz as mentioned in another report.

Two other teams could put Fultz to good use. The Orlando Magic could be a sensible destination, seeing as how the team needs a guard they can count on for long-term. They currently have D.J. Augustin and Jerian Grant.

One thing holding back teams is his shooting. It is a something that has become a concern for teams and something Fultz needs to work on. In his position, lacking a decent jumper is a big deficiency.

The struggling Chicago Bulls is another team that could gamble on Fultz, although the sophomore may be relegated to a backup role. Kris Dunn has been superb for the Bulls. This could be a good stop for Fultz, a place where he can hone up his shooting and mark up his value as a pro basketball player, Hoops Habit reported.

With a poor outside shot compounded by a health-related issue (thoracic outlet syndrome), the only thing going for the 20-year-old is that he is still young and can still improve. It will require a lot of work on his end, but it is a necessity if Fultz plans to have a long and lasting NBA career.
