Max Christie is a skilled swingman that can shoot and score the basketball. He’s not particularly fast or overwhelmingly athletic, but his subtle quickness can allow him to get jump shots off to score on outside shots. He’ll need to improve in the other elements of the game, but his ability to knock down shots could enable him to be an effective role player in the NBA someday.
