Luke Maye is a smart, skilled combo forward that can shoot the basketball. He can make shots from all over the court, and he has a patented pump fake that can really help his team space the floor.
On the downside, he may not be an especially dynamic player nor athletic, as that may limit his ceiling as a prospect for the NBA. But still, Maye’s skill set and ability to put the ball in the hoop could perhaps help him find his way into the league.
