76ers rookie guard Markelle Fultz returned to action on Monday for the first time since October 23 in a 123-104 win over the Denver Nuggets.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NBA draft played 15 minutes as the backup point guard to starter Ben Simmons. He scored 10 points on 5-for-13 shooting from the field, while dishing out eight assists and grabbing four rebounds.

“There was a little bit of excitement,” said Fultz about entering the game for the first time. “And a little bit of ‘I have to help the team.’ ‘I don’t want to let the team down.’ Once I stepped out there on the floor, it felt great to be back out there with my brothers.”

With the possibility of a trade looming, Knicks guard Frank Ntilikina dropped CAA as his agency last season and planned to sign with French agent Bouna Ndiaye, the Daily News has learned.

Ntilikina, who was drafted eighth overall by Knicks in 2017, is on the trading block and desires a relocation, a source told the News. The Knicks declined offers to move Ntilikina at the trade deadline in February, acquired another point guard in Dennis Smith Jr., and Ntilikina quickly decided to change agents.

Ndiaye, who is from France, exclusively reps French players in the NBA — Rudy Gobert (Jazz), Nicolas Batum (Hornets), Evan Fournier (Magic) and Ian Mahinmi (Wizards). CAA, meanwhile, is one of the biggest NBA agencies.
