Max Christie NBA Draft Stock & Projection
- New Orleans Pelicans (No. 41) - 2
- Milwaukee Bucks (No. 35) - 1
Each of the three highlighted mock drafts has Christie being drafted early on in the second round. Interestingly, two experts have him going to the New Orleans Pelicans at No. 41. Aside from C.J. McCollum, the Pelicans' only shooting guards signed for next season are Garrett Temple and Trey Murphy III, so it wouldn't be surprising if New Orleans wanted to add Christie to the mix.
Max Christie Stats
2021-22 Michigan State Spartans (Freshman)
- 9.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.5 steals, 0.5 blocks, 1.5 turnovers, 1.1 3-pointers, 30.8 minutes per game. 38.2% field goal, 31.7% 3-point shooting.
Christie's freshman season at Michigan State was somewhat of a Jekyll and Hyde situation. After seeing double-digit point totals in nine of his first 19 games last season, he only score 10 or more points three times in his last 16 games to close out the year. If he can work on the consistency of his shooting, he could have a future as a shooter off the bench.
