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. Recently, he decided to enroll at Howard to play college basketball for the 2020-21 season.
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.
