Several teams have entirely ruled Thon Maker out of the first round due to his age. Multiple sources believe Maker to be 21-23, not 19.— Jake Fischer (@JakeLFischer) June 23, 2016
Eleven NBA teams called me over the past 3 months about 7-footer Thon Maker. None of them were 100% convinced of his age.— Jeff Rabjohns (@JeffRabjohns) June 23, 2016
There are reports out there that Thon Maker could be as old as 24. This is just about the worst thing that could happen to a potential draftee on the day of the draft. If Maker is really only 19, than I feel really bad for the kid (And I guess if he lied about his age than he no longer is a kid). Unless some team that wants Maker to drop to them in the late 1st round spread this rumor, expect Maker's stock to plummet.
