Australian forward Thon Maker has been ruled eligible to enter the 2016 NBA draft, reports Chad Ford of ESPN. 

Maker declared for the draft a few weeks ago and was waiting for the NBA to rule on his eligibility because he had not left high school. However, Maker, 19, is the required age for a player in the draft, and did graduate in 2015 despite deciding to spend another year at Athlete Institute in Ontario, Canada.
