Sonoran Hot Reads: Thon Maker will try to enter 2016 NBA Draft

Will he actually be eligible to be drafted?

In a Bleacher Report video released on Sunday, highly-recruited 2016 basketball prospect Thon Maker announced that he will declare for the 2016 NBA Draft. Only one problem, he's not technically eligible, having graduated from high school in Canada back in June of 2015. Maker was said to be considering ASU as one of his five schools to attend next year, but if you watch the video, while there's a Sun Devil logo in the video, at the beginning, the audio suggests there were only four schools in the running for his services, and ASU was not one of them. However, amateurism concerns surrounding the player may be playing into this decision anyway.
