Max Christie is an athletic, skilled swingman that can shoot and score the basketball. He’s an athletic swingman that can score on hustle plays, and 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.
