The lithe Maker averaged 14.2 points and raised some eyebrows with his consistent and strong rebounding, averaging 9.6 boards a game. But it wasn’t the numbers that Maker put up during summer league competitionthat the Bucks were most concerned about, according to Sean Sweeney, who served as the Bucks head coach. “I thought he did a great,’’ Sweeney said of Maker. “Our goal was daily improvement, not to skip any steps, try to improve each day and try to do the best he could every time he stepped on the floor and try to put together as many good plays as he could, as many good possessions as he could and I thought he did a great job in checking those boxes.’’
