Bucks select big man Thon Maker with 10th pick in NBA draft
MILWAUKEE (AP) -
The Milwaukee Bucks have taken Thon Maker with the 10th overall pick in the NBA draft, a 19-year-old big man who could be a long-term project. The 7-foot-1 Australian played last year for the Athlete Institute in Canada. An NBA.com scouting report says Maker has defensive upside and potential as a shooter. The Bucks needed a big man who could defend, rebound and provide another physical presence. They also could use a 3-point shooter and another ball-handler. They went with a young big man to join young cornerstone forwards Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo. General manager John Hammond took a risk on international prospect Antetokounmpo in the 2013 draft that has paid off. The Bucks hope they can get the same return eventually on Maker.
