Daryl Macon Celebrity Life
Barely a day after being called up by the Miami Heats, from his G league team, the Sioux Falls Skyforce, Daryl Macon Jr. was relegated back to his G league team in December of 2019.
Basketball experts suggest that waiving Macon, and his move back to Skyforce was mainly to keep a spot free for Gabe Vincent, currently a hit player, who was acquired by Heats as part of a two-way deal.
Macon has had a very short stint with the Heats since h was signed up by them, lasting just 4 matches, his total points' tally stands at 3 with one assist, with a total of 14 minutes spent on the court for his team.
On the other hand, Macon has maintained a steady average of 19.1 points and 4.5 rebounds per game while playing with Skyforce. He has appeared in roughly 15 matches at the time of this article being written.
Early Life and Career
Macon, currently a 24-year-old player standing tall at 6 ft 2 in, was born on 29th November 1995. His birthplace is Little Rock, Arkansas and currently plays as point or shooting guard for Miami Heats or their affiliated G League team, the Skyforce.
His interest in the sport, like several other players, stemmed from his early days when he was studying at Holmes Community College. Macon took the sport seriously enough to maintain an average of 23 points per game, with 4.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists while he was in his freshman year.
This earned him a spot in NJCAA Division I Men's Third Basketball team as a junior. During this time, his average fell to 13.4 points per game. Although he declared for the NBA Draft of 2017 minus an agent, he went back to Arkansas Razorbacks, his university basketball team.
When Macon declared himself again for the following year's draft, he was not drafted by any team but few teams, both within the NBA and overseas, were interested in signing him up. He took up Miami Heat's NBA Summer League offer and joined them as a part of a two-way deal.
In the same year, he signed another two-way deal with Dallas Mavericks and their affiliated G League team, the Texas Legends.
Macon's first match for the NBA was on 26th October 2018, for the Mavericks and against the Austin Spurs. Since October of 2019, Macon has been with the Heats and Skyforce, and in January of 2020, Macon's two-way contract was converted into an acquisition by Skyforce by using the returning player right.
Macon is currently estimated to be worth $1 million. Although Macon has had a slow NBA start, his steady performance with his G league team still gives some hope for his followers that he will play a more active part in the NBA league matches.
Experts are of the opinion that Macon has now set his sights on improving his game considerably so he spotted and picked up by NBA scouts.
Analysts, who have been monitoring Macon's games closely, have noted on his struggle playing offensive. He was unable to convert either of the 2 opportunities he had to shoot a three-pointer in a match held early in January of 2020 and managed just 25% overall shooting in that game.
His current stats, while playing for the G League team, stand at 19.1 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per match while he managed to secure just 3 points in his last match.
The good news is that Macon has not suffered any known major injuries and has upped his efforts in the gym which would only help him improve his game gradually.
