Thon Maker to Sign Deal with Cavaliers

Thon Maker was one of the most intriguing stories of the 2016 NBA Draft class, ultimately selected with the No. 10 overall pick. After not receiving a qualifying offer from the Detroit Pistons last week, he became a free agent for the first time in his career.

According to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, Maker will sign a deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Still just 23 years old, the 7-footer will join the third team of his short NBA career. After spending less than three seasons with the Bucks to start his career, he spend the last season and a half in Detroit.

Maker’s career averages of 4.7 points and 2.8 rebounds per game are less than impressive. However, a player of his size, who has the ability to stretch the floor is worth a gamble.

This is a non-guaranteed deal, so Maker will need to perform well in training camp over the next few weeks to earn a roster spot for the 2020-21 season.
