He has played also professionally in Turkey, NBA (LA Lakers) and Slovakia (Nitra).
Majok's game is described as: (by Rodney Halprin for NBADraft.net in 2011)
He is comfortable using both hands and shows good timing when going after shots ... He alters numerous plays and has the capacity to be a formidable post and help defender ... Desite his slight frame, he isn't afraid of physical play, hustles hard and will get after loose balls. He is active on the offensive boards and finds his man on the defensive end, however due to mainly his lack of strength in the past, he has not been a dominant rebounder up to this point ... He has also had some difficulties with foul trouble playing the 4/5 spot
