    Maker is now also talking about going to college. He mentioned UCLA because he lives in LA, it's not apparent if UCLA is actually involved, I'm sure they would take him if he said I want to play there and I'm eligible, but not clear either one of those is true.

    He's apparently not projected into the draft and said he would only go pro if projected as a lottery pick

    New Sports Illustrated mock has the Suns drafting Cole Anthony.

    10. Suns - Cole Anthony, PG, North Carolina

    Height: 6’3” | Weight: 190 | Age: 20 | Freshman


    If the rough lottery odds hold in some capacity, Anthony’s draft range would seem to begin with the Knicks’ pick and end somewhere in the teens. The Suns temporarily addressed their revolving-door situation at point guard with Ricky Rubio, but ultimately need to find more shooting in the backcourt to better optimize Devin Booker. Anthony has his flaws, but his ability to hit tough shots from distance and help initiate offense should make him a candidate for Phoenix. The Suns are heavy on young wings with Kelly Oubre, Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson all on the roster and shouldn’t hesitate to upgrade at guard. Younger prospects like Kira Lewis and Patrick Williams might also figure in here. Scouts I’ve spoken with have been down on Anthony overall, but he does have translatable strengths that should help him bounce back in the right situation. Still, it’s not a lock he goes in the lottery.

    My fear is that something like this actually happens and they waste a pick on a player who looked terrible all year, I wouldn't pick him in the first round let alone at 10

    Same here.

    The turnovers and shooting particularly bother me about Cole. I'd prefer the Suns go another direction.

    About the only pick that would be worse than Cole Anthony is Nico Mannion.
