Potential No. 1 collect Markelle Fultz was during Madison Square Garden on Sunday to take in Knicks-Raptors from a courtside seat. He’s been to Wizards and Sixers home games, too, recently, “just to see a approach they play.”

So after examination a Knicks’ triangle offense adult close, does Fultz consider he can flower in New York?

“I consider we could play in any system,” he said. “I’m really versatile, so it was cold to see that. It’s a lot of openings and things like that, so that’s because we came to see that in person.”

The Knicks would have to get extremely propitious on lottery night to be in position to breeze Fultz, who is widely noticed as a top-three pick (and that’s being conservative).

After Sunday’s 110-97 loss, New York (30-51) owns a sixth-worst record in a NBA. They can tie Philadelphia for a fifth-worst record if a Sixers win on Monday opposite Indiana and in a deteriorate culmination on Wednesday opposite a Knicks. If New York wins on Wednesday, there is a possibility it could finish adult aloft than sixth in a “lottery stands,” that would lessen their contingency of alighting a tip pick. If a Knicks finished with a sixth-worst record, they’d have a 6 percent possibility of alighting a tip collect and a 21 percent possibility of drafting in a tip three.

Marbury has had incredible success personification in China, winning 3 CBA titles after his reign with a Knicks finished poorly. He was waived in 2008 after an catastrophic four-year run with his hometown group that came to a end after a argument with then-coach Mike D’Antoni.

At assent now with how things finished in New York, Marbury says he skeleton to retire after subsequent deteriorate and hopes to get concerned in coaching, presumably in a NBA. He perceived a shrill acclaim from fans after being featured on a MSG video board. Marbury pronounced he appreciated a throng “paying respect.”

“As we said, I’ve always been a Knicks fan given we was flourishing up. So that will never change. I’ve changed past a things that happened past in sequence to be means to have finished all a things I’ve been means to do in China. … It’s good to be famous in that light and it’s good to be back.”
