NBA DRAFT SCOUTING REPORT
|POSITION: PF C||FROM: Howard University|
|HT: 7-0||WT: 230|
|BORN: 11/4/00||YEAR: HSsr5||WING: NA||REACH: NA|
Makur is a very mobile and athletic player who plays like a guard in a 7-0 body. This is an intriguing combination but doesn’t always serve him well, as he doesn’t always use his height to his advantage and settles for the outside shot.
Maker has great body control and athleticism and is a unique talent. He changes ends in a flash and has good change of speed and stop/start ability.
Maker loves to handle the ball on the perimeter and initiate the offense. It’ll be interesting to see how much ball handling responsibilities he has at Howard and early in his NBA career.
He’s got a lot of upside but a long ways to go to be NBA ready. His 3pt shooting can be a bit erratic and his decision making leaves something to be desired. Still, you don’t find 7-footers who can move like him very often so there’s a lot to like and a lot of tools to work with.
