Matur Maker, the younger brother of Thon Maker, will skip NCAA basketball and enter the 2018 NBA Draft, his guardian Ed Smith told multiple media outlets Friday.

Maker is following in the same footsteps as his brother, who also took a postgraduate year after graduation at a Toronto-area high school in order to qualify for the draft.

A 6-foot-10 forward with a 7-foot-3 wingspan, Maker isn't listed high in many mock drafts.
