Summary:

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.
