Makur Maker is an athletic, skilled big man that can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and he is also a tremendous rebounder.  The NBA has stated that he is eligible for the 2020 NBA Draft if he decides to apply.

Maker is an intriguing prospect, as he is a tall, athletic big man that can handle the basketball, and he will look to take numerous outside shots in games.  He will need to be more assertive on offense and be a more consistent long-range shooter, and he may still have ways to go before being ready to play in the association.  Still, Maker is a talented player, as his blend of size, skills, and versatility could potentially allow him to thrive in the NBA.
