MILForward: 7’1, 223 lbs; 2nd year, Australia via South Sudan

 NBA Role: (raw) two-way forward • UnderDOG

Former YouTube sensation Thon Maker is a thought-provoking forward with true upside; at 7’1, Maker has some guard skills, doesn’t really move like a guy his size – leads way for opportunities to push the break, launch perimeter Js via step backs & change ends with ease; fits right into Milwaukee’s mold of young, long athletes; non-stop motor: most noticeable on the glass where Maker’s athleticism and relentless energy transfers into plenty of boards; needs to develop a stronger upper body & base; rounding out his game but Maker reps the new wave of skilled, positionless forwards entering the NBA; played more than anticipated as a rook – high stock heading into 2017-18
