Potential No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz appears to have been hitting the weights quite a bit lately as he prepares for the 2017 NBA Draft.
In fact, he looks like he might have added some significant weight, based on a recent picture of him at the gym.

The former Washington point guard was listed at 195 pounds last year for the Huskies. He’s not 195 any more. That’s for sure.
The Boston Celtics currently own the No. 1 pick in the draft, and Fultz is reportedly favored to be their choice. It’s going to be interesting to see what happens the next month or so as the NBA world prepares for the annual event. If the C’s do pick up Fultz, then perhaps it will signal the end of the road for Isaiah Thomas in Boston.
In the meantime, Boston will look to stave off elimination on Thursday night after falling into a 3-1 hole against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
