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.

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.
