HS Star Thon Maker Enters NBA Draft (By @professorcorria)

Thon Maker, the 19 year old Sudanese NBA prospect, by way of Australia has declared for the NBA draft. He was ruled eligible through a loophole because he is a 5th year senior who had completed the requite coursework to graduate high school last June. It’s unclear right now where Maker will get drafted, Chris Mannix has said that ,”he could be drafted anywhere from 5th to 5oth.”Will this loophole make it easier for other high school players to forgo college and head straight to the NBA, or will the league put an end to this in the next CBA? For now, here are the strengths and weaknesses in Thon Maker’s game, courtesy of Draftexpress.com
