Meet Thon Maker: Newest Detroit Piston skipped college for NBA

The Detroit Pistons made another move ahead of Thursday’s NBA trade deadline, moving Stanley Johnson to the Milwaukee Bucks. 

Here’s a bit about the Most Recent player his home: 

The Bucks maker, that had been drafted 10th overall by the Bucks is a center South Sudan, from Wau. When he was 6 years old, he emigrated to Australia. He spent two high school seasons. 

Maker did not go to college. Technically, he was drafted right out of high school. In the 13-14 and 2012-13 seasons, he played high school ball in Virginia. But in Canada, he had been by the 2014-15 season. By normal standards, he should have been with the faculty class of 2016. 

In accordance with some 2016 ESPN article, it had been believed Maker allowing him to get to the NBA earlier, could reclassify and proceed to school with the 2015 course. The NBA said it was OK, and Maker was part of the 2016 NBA draft. 

Maker has been a role player for the Bucks Ever since being drafted in 2016. When he began 34 of 57 games the most games that he began was his rookie season. The 2017-18 season was when he played with the most, averaging 16.7 minutes. 

Maker, that turns 22 this month, is 7-1 and 221 pounds. He had fallen out of the rotation for the Bucks, one of the top clubs. In his career, he averages 4.5 points, 2.6 rebounds and 0.6 blocks while shooting 43 percent from the field and 33 percent from the 3-point line. 

NBA celebrity Anthony Davis made headlines last week saying that he wanted to be traded from New Orleans. Reportedly thus did Maker, but those requests didn’t make headlines, since he is not Davis. By Adrian Wojnarowski on Jan. 27, Maker’s management told Milwaukee that he would “prefer the franchise” exchange Maker to a team that would provide a larger role. 

The next day, in a Q&A using the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Maker explained that he was “focused on the game” and “I’ve never just said matters recklessly without thinking about it or talking to folks about it. I always go back to my people and talk to them. I just focus on the match; that’s all I have done up to now.” Maker’s career numbers are. The best game of his livelihood came in 2017 against, you guessed it.
