"Viper. I like Boa constrictor, too. But viper is the best meat I've ever had. It tastes like fish and chicken combined. It's very good." - Luc Mbah A Moute, when asked to name his favourite food.

Thon Maker
C, 7’1, 216lbs, 20 years old, 1 year of experience

Despite the fact that he was supposed to be as raw as anyone, Maker had some good moments, including in the postseason. Able to track driving opponents defensively, combined with shot blocking instincts should they get to the rim, as well as offensively showing some stretch potential (37.8% three-point shooter as a rookie is very nice, even if it tailed off late) and being a pleasingly good passer, his ceiling looks really good. The massive foul rates and poor rebounding will be key steps to rounding out his game, but that’s quite the package of skills he has. 7’1 players that laterally quick and defensively minded are very rare. So are 7’1 players shooting in the high thirties from three.

Player Plan: Three years of rookie scale remaining. Keep and develop.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 25th November 2017

We picked Maker in the past on account of his steady and improving fantasy stat lines from the bench, but getting a starting spot last time out helped further. In the absence of John Henson, Maker recorded 16 points, 8 rebounds, 3 blocks and 35.1 fantasy points, a very good return for such a tiny price. Listed as ‘probable’ at the time of writing, Henson might return tonight, which would diminish Maker’s fantasy value a touch. But there is some there anyway.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 18th November 2017

After a slow start, Maker has started to take advantage of the playing time opened up for him by the Greg Monroe trade. Aside from one 0.7 drop-off between games three and four of the streak, his fantasy points scoring tallies have improved in each of the last six games, from 12.4 to 20.1 in the last outing. And while those are not huge tallies – as a very limited scorer in a backup role, Maker will rarely have many big fantasy point nights – they are consistent, and available for a tiny price.
