For his part, the 7-foot, 216-pound (Thon) Maker said he’s a fan of Durant’s but doesn’t compare himself to him.
“Exactly, I like Durant as a player,” Maker, who is originally from Sudan and has lived in Australia, the U.S. and Canada, said with a chuckle here Friday. “They [the media] say I think I think I’m Durant.”
He will work out next week for the Indiana Pacers (likely on Wednesday), while Atlanta, Boston, Orlando, Detroit and Minnesota are expected to bring him in for workouts, a source told SNY.tv. He met here with Minnesota, Boston, Charlotte, Portland, Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Detroit, Orlando and the Lakers.
