Matur Maker, the younger brother of Thon Maker, will skip college and enter the 2018 NBA draft, his guardian told ESPN on Friday.

Thon Maker did the same in 2016, bypassing the college route and getting selected 10th by the Milwaukee Bucks.

Matur Maker just turned 20 years old, according to his guardian Ed Smith, and he is a year removed from his high school graduating class, making him eligible for the NBA draft. Maker is currently doing a postgraduate year at Mississauga Prep in Ontario, Canada.

Maker and Smith had discussed going to college in the past, but Smith said Maker likely would not have qualified.

"You are allotted a certain window to get all of your coursework done, and it took him longer," Smith told ESPN.

Maker, a 6-foot-10 power forward, has a 7-foot-3 wingspan. He is averaging 25.5 points and 11.3 rebounds so far this season for Mississauga. Maker also averaged 26 points and 7 rebounds playing for Asia Pacific at the Adidas Nations event in August.

MY NOTE:  He isn't ranked yet by the mock drafts, but he just announced he's making himself eligible so I wouldn't expect him to be.  If you remember Thon Maker started out as an early 2nd round pick and kept going up and up and up until he was picked 10th by Milwaukee.
