Next Aussie Talent Wave
Thought some young guys deserved some discussion -
Makur Maker - Thons cousinif you didn't know. I believe I saw tweeted that he got an offer to UCLA.. big if true. I've been following his name and he seems to be a pretty legit prospect.. big size, looks imo the most natural mover/coordinated of the Makers, and has been straight balling. I'm quite excited by him, doesn't get enough talk.
Matur Maker - The brother of Thon. Iirc he pulled out of 18 draft, was talk of some interest but clearly not enough to secure a pick. Haven't heard much of his time since then, can anyone provide some insight? Saw him listed in a tweet recently as 6'10 w/ 7'3 wingspan, which is bigger than I recall and impressive NBA PF measurements.. impressive if not embellished.
Josh Green - I think we're all up to date with this guy. Stud. Recently returned from injury and playing for IMG, looks as athletic as ever. One of the only one on here that has a real case for 19/20 Boomers.
Koaut Noi - okay, may e this is the ither guy that has a Boomers chance. He had 27 points the other day and backed it up with another good performance. He is an awesome shooter and has an athletic, defensive profile, could be a future Boomers SF I reckon.
Tamuri Wigness- Anyone know of any re ent developments with hin since his latest Aus. play? I'm eagerly awaiting news of his next growth spurt. This kid has a massive ceiling depending on how much his size limits him going forward (can be a player regardless)
We've got Adel performing well in the GLeague. Adel needs to shoot the 3 better but otherwise impressing. Humphries also doing well, a bit archaic for a modern big but I think they're working on his range at least.
Anyone got an update on Cook, Moneke, Landale, etc.? The former 2 in particular are athletic kids who can ball, would love to see how good they get.
And ofc, zome other D1 guys contributing like Gak, Kiir, Vasiljevic, White in particular is getting a lot of exposure for Duke and doing great.
Any other names worth a mention?
