HoopsHype Semaj Christon rumors
Former Xavier standout Semaj Christon will start his professional basketball career in the NBA Development League, his agent said Monday. Doug Neustadt of The Neustadt Group said Christon will sign a D-League contract soon and play point guard for the franchise's affiliate, the newly renamed Oklahoma City Blue. cincinnati.com
The preseason roster the Thunder released today doesn’t include Semaj Christon‘s name on it, so presumably the 55th overall pick from June’s draft won’t be joining the team this year. Oklahoma City acquired the rights to the former Xavier point guard in a draft-night trade with the Hornets, who’d obtained his rights from the Heat in a trade earlier that same evening. Hoops Rumors
The Miami HEAT announced today that they have acquired the draft rights to guard Shabazz Napier (24th overall) from the Charlotte Hornets in exchange for the draft rights to P.J. Hairston (26th overall) and Semaj Christon (55th overall), a 2019 second-round draft choice and cash considerations. “Shabazz Napier is a winner, he’s a two-time NCAA champion and he’s one of the elite players in college basketball,” said HEAT President Pat Riley. “We feel very fortunate we were able to acquire him and we feel like he fits in extremely well. He has a high motor, high basketball IQ, is a great shooter and has great character.” NBA.com
