So close to a double-double! Not that it matters, though, as he's still 6 minutes short of being remotely rosterable.

But ppl were trynna tell me that he’s not rosterable unless he gets 35 minutes ... fuk outta here 

Inching close to top 100 value, and in the right lineup, he already has that kind of value.  He is a valuable source of assists and has shown consistent improvement over the course of the season.

Not that I'm unhappy about picking up Fultz, but I had really high hopes for his steals. I really though he was going to flirt with 2 a game. 

13 points 5 rebounds 9 assists 1 steal, he's heating up nicely, his steals are nice too

Give him time, he's about to blow up. I'm honestly surprised he has been allowed to float around on waivers

So someone may have to put me in my place here, but do you all really expect Fultz to be doing much better ROS than he has been? It's been a pretty fun ride so far but it seems like he hovers around top 100 pretty consistently - sometimes a bit more, sometimes a bit less - even with the added playing time. And ultimately his production just seems a bit capped, which puts him pretty close to cut territory if someone else more seemingly appealing comes along (i.e., Hart, Rondo, etc.).  Please, someone, quick, put me in my place.

If you watch Magic games, the one limiting Fultz upside is the offensive system Clifford runs with the team. Everything is centered around Fournier and Vuc that it becomes borderline disgusting lol. If you put Fultz in a run and gun system I’m sure he would blossom.

I'm holding. I picked him up off the wire and he's my #4 PG so he works as an end of the bench guy. Anything more is gravy.

Fultz just isn't that great yet. He's been a wonderful pick up, but the team doesn't operate around him and probably will not the rest of this season. It's too early to do that. Fultz has his flaws and one of the biggest ones is his lack of outside shooting. Someone mentioned above that the offense revolves around Fournier and Vuc which is so true. If you go back and look at Fultz's 7 and 9 assist games, he wasn't the one to run most of those plays. He rarely ever play pick and roll/pop. It's understandable as well because it makes more sense giving Fournier the ball to do that with Vuc since he's a 3pt threat. In addition to that, when DJ Augustin has good games, he'll play more minutes and sometimes share the floor with Fultz. When they do that, Fultz plays a lot off ball which doesn't make sense given Fultz lack of outside shooting. Either bench him or give him the ball to run point. Steve Clifford seems to do all he can to give him 30mins a game, but this team is definitely not ready to let Fultz facilitate the offense yet. He's great for defensive stats for now.
