Maker played just eight games with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2020-21 and has struggled for consistent playing time in the NBA after being drafted with the 10th pick in the 2016 draft.
Kilpatrick last played in the NBA in 2018, and has had stints with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Denver Nuggets, Milwaukee Bucks, Brooklyn Nets, LA Clippers and Chicago Bulls.
