It took all of two days in Boston for 2017 top NBA prospect Markelle Fultz to fall in love with the idea of becoming a Celtic.
In Boston for a two-day visit that included a meeting with Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge and a pre-draft workout with the Celtics, Fultz couldn’t help but marvel at everything around him during his time around the C’s.
“It almost feels like I belong here,” Fultz, who is unsure if he’s going to workout for anybody besides the Celtics, told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman during a tour of TD Garden on Tuesday.
The tour included stops in the bowels of the arena, where iconic photos of Celtics legends line the walls, and then to the seats, where a simple look to the sky shows off the club’s 17 championship banners.
His time in Boston also included an on-floor workout, and then a film session with C’s coach Brad Stevens.
“My visit here was great. It was a good experience,” Fultz told ESPN. “First of all, I came here, did some medical stuff at the doctors, a physical. I went out to eat later that night [with Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge], that was a good experience just seeing the food culture here, got a good burger.”
The 19-year-old Fultz averaged 23.2 points and 5.9 assists per contest in 25 games for the Washington Huskies last season.
