Working out alongside Thon was his younger brother Matur Maker. Thon offered a great deal of instruction walking him through different details of footwork and technique. In a unique situation being able to work with an NBA trainer and one of the more talented and hardest working rookies in the NBA, Matur is in as enviable a development situation as almost any player his age could possibly be.
In addition to filming the workout, we interviewed both players afterwards. Matur said he's still undecided on his next step.  There seems to be a good chance he might enter the 2018 NBA Draft, but it is unclear where he will play in the meantime.  We'll have more content from the Maker brothers in the coming days. In the meantime, here's an interview we conducted with Thon:

Matur Maker, Australia (via Sudan), C, Class of 2017, Uncommitted, 19.2 Strengths
-Measured a bit short (6' 9.5 in shoes) but solid length for a center prospect with a 7' 2 wingspan and a 9' 1 standing reach.
-Length helps him have an impact on the offensive glass and as a rim protector (2.1 blocks per 40).
-Moves a bit awkwardly but gets from point A to point B as a rim runner
-Competitive kid. Gets a lot of stuff done by simply playing harder than his opponents. Makes himself available off the ball.
-Has some touch from mid-range spots. Career 80.4% from the free throw line (107 attempts). Stroke is a bit mechanical and unorthodox but he gets good rotation. Will occasionally stretch it to three.
-Can straight line drive a little bit in space. Occasionally shows flashes of vision although he has some trouble executing.Weaknesses
-Poor frame for a center prospect, especially in his lower body. Legs are twigs. Upper body is a bit hunched. Shoes nearly falling off. 195-pound frame. A tad short for a center prospect at 6' 9.5.
-Lack of a base limits him athletically. A bit awkward in his movements. Below the rim in a crowd. Needs time to load up and play above the rim.
-Needs to strengthen his core. Knocked off balance easily. Struggles to play through contact. Has issues finishing in a crowd. Not going to body up in the post vs traditional bigs.
-Gets beat on switches. Hunched over guarding the perimeter.
-Slow to defensive rebounds. Instincts on the glass aren't great. Anchored to the floor from a standstill and doesn't have the frame to drive back opponents.
-Feel for the game has room to improve. Tries to play outside of himself - push in transition, create off the dribble. Doesn't have the skill set for that. Has issues executing the simple pass.
-Hands are a bit shaky. Loses the ball in traffic and while trying to create from the perimeter.
-Can improve his left hand and overall touch around the rim.
-Decent mid-range shooter but his stroke isn't all that fluid. Swishes followed by really bad misses. Slips out of his hands regularly.Outlook
Although Maker was very productive in the BioSteel game, he still has quite a bit of work to do in terms of his body, skill set and overall feel for the game. His athleticism and ability to play through contact are limited by his weak base, and he doesn't quite have the game to be a skill guy' at this stage. Maker can be a very effective college player if he can use his high motor to have an impact as a rim runner, shot blocker, offensive rebounder and overall energy big. He plays hard and approaches the game the right way. It remains to be seen what Maker's intentions are next year, but he didn't look like a sure-fire NBA prospect at this time despite his productivity.
