·1 min read

The Los Angeles Lakers have selected Michigan State shooting guard Max Christie with the No. 35 overall pick in the second round of the 2022 NBA Draft.

Unfortunately, Christie fell out of the first round, but ended up getting drafted in a great landing spot with the Lakers where he will play alongside Lebron James and Anthony Davis.

The Los Angeles Lakers originally did not have a pick in this draft, but moved into the early second round on draft day to select Christie.

In his one season at Michigan State, Christie averaged 9.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game in 35 games.
