Jordan Bell playfully suggests that Markelle Fultz should be jealous of him

Jordan Bell couldn’t be more delighted to have been traded to the Golden State Warriors after being selected with the No. 38 pick by the Chicago Bulls and he’s not shy about expressing his joy.

Going from a program on the rise like the Oregon Ducks, who came off their first Final Four appearance in 78 years, Bell is landing on the defending champions roster that will need plenty of workman-like contributions to maintain its edge.

“I think I’m in the best spot. I think Markelle Fultz would rather be in my position than his,” Bell said jokingly on 95.7 The Game radio on Wednesday.

Fultz was the No. 1 overall pick and landed with the Philadelphia 76ers, surrounded by young talent like Ben Simmons, Dario Saric, and Joel Embiid.

The Washington standout is bound to see plenty of time at the point guard position, but it’s yet to be seen how long it’ll take the Sixers to reach Eastern Conference prominence.

Bell is a plug-and-play piece to the puzzle in a team that has a culture in place and while he won’t see nearly the amount of playing time or the numbers that Fultz will put up, he will see plenty of W’s racked up on the column.
