Brett Brown eyes starting Markelle Fultz only in first half


SHENZHEN, China — Coach Brett Brown remains committed to keeping guard Markelle Fultz in the Philadelphia 76ers‘ starting lineup but is considering bringing last year’s No. 1 overall pick off the bench to begin the second half of games.

Brown experimented with that rotation during the 76ers’ 115-112 loss to the Dallas Mavericks in Philadelphia’s preseason finale on Monday.

After picking up four fouls in the first half, Fultz came off the bench in the third quarter. JJ Redick, who started for last season’s 52-win team, replaced him in the starting lineup.
