The Lakers found a way to take part in this year’s NBA Draft as they acquired the number 35 pick from the Magic. Los Angeles used it to draft Max Christie.
Lakers legend Magic Johnson likes the pick and is excited to see the 19-year-old shooting guard play for the purple and gold. He also pointed at which areas of the game the rookie has to improve.
“I’m excited about the @Lakers draft pick MSU’s Max Christie! He can play multiple positions, is an excellent defender, has a high basketball IQ, and has a beautiful jump shot. Max just needs to get stronger and work on his ball handling,” the five-time NBA champion tweeted.
