Thon Maker went 3-of-10 from the field to finish Sunday's exhibition victory with eight points, eight rebounds, three blocks and three turnovers in 28 minutes. Maker bungled a few plays in the paint and has yet to prove that he can create his own offense, but that's what Summer League is for. His shooting range is an intriguing facet of his long-term fantasy value, after going 37.8 percent from deep as a rookie, and it meshes with the NBA's emphasis on court-spreading big men. Maker used his length and timing to good effect defensively tonight and he should be starting on opening night, as the Bucks seem to favor Greg Monroe in a backup role.

Thon Maker did not have a great game on Friday, making 1-of-8 from the field for four points with five rebounds, one steal, one 3-pointer and three turnovers in 24 minutes against the Cavs. To make matters worse, he was 1-of-4 from the line, and also the muscle watch from last month didn't look apparent with how he was pushed around. On the broadcast, coach Jason Kidd said that Maker and Giannis Antetokounmpo have established a bond to help push each other. Kidd added he's eventually going to ask Maker to handle the ball, but he wants him to become a better rebounder first. For what it's worth, Maker was very sloppy with the ball today. He'll be better his next time out.

Thon Maker "has been lifting diligently" this offseason and has gained muscle in his upper and lower body, according to Draft Express. Muscle Watch! Maker has been at Adidas Euro Camp and reportedly has been burying plenty of jumpers. It took Maker about 75 percent of his rookie campaign to get the ball rolling, but he showed some improved defense and he's gone on some strong shooting stretches. Considering how raw he was this time last year, it's fair to say he's ahead of schedule. Maker will be a sleeper to watch this summer.

Thon Maker blocked a career-high five shots against the Raptors on Thursday, adding two points, two rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 13 minutes. The rim protection has been the story for Maker, who had 1.8 blocks per game in his previous five postseason outings. Considering he was one of the most raw players to be taken in the lottery in quite some time, the Bucks have to be pleased with his development. He had a couple eye-opening games at Summer League last year, so maybe he'll be back there again. Maker will be on the radar in the last couple rounds next season.

Jason Kidd is hopeful that having Thon Maker in the starting lineup during the playoffs will help speed up his development. "This is a great opportunity for him to go through the process," Kidd said. "Being a starter can hopefully help him grow faster. He's going against All-Stars or he's going to go against quite a few talented players out on the floor when you go against the other starting group. So hopefully this speeds up the process." Through the first two games of Milwaukee's first-round series, Maker has put forth averages of 4.5 points, 3.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 2.5 blocks per contest.

Malcolm Brogdon, Khris Middleton, Tony Snell, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Thon Maker will start against the Raptors in Game 1 on Saturday. It's hard to believe a second-round pick, Snell and a major project like Maker would be a playoff starting lineup, but Giannis is just that good. Maker will almost certainly be on a short leash, especially if Jonas Valanciunas gets going.

Thon Maker hit 5-of-7 shots with a 3-pointer to score 11 points on Sunday, but he added just one rebound with no other stats in 20 minutes. The offense was nice, but it's still a far cry from his 23-point eruption on Friday. Considering Maker's shaky playing time and paltry supporting stats, there should be better options on nearly all waiver wires.
