Maker declared for the Draft on April 3rd, but there were questions surrounding his eligibility. Maker graduated last year and did a post graduate year this year.

Shortly after declaring for the Draft, Maker traveled to Myrtle Beach to begin training with NBA skills trainer Drew Hanlen.   

Maker has been well traveled. A native of Sudan, Maker moved to Australia and then to the United States in the eighth grade.

Maker had a brief stint in Louisiana before going to Carlisle School in Virginia. After two seasons there, Maker moved to Canada to go to Athletes Institute. 

Maker was ranked the No. 5 prospect in the 2016 rankings.
