Impressing in Summer League
GMiami Heat
July 15, 2024
Christopher recorded 23 points (8-11 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal across 21 minutes during Monday's 102-73 Summer League win over the Thunder.
ANALYSIS
Christopher did the majority of his damage from beyond the arc, drilling six of eight tries to account for 18 of his 23 points. He easily paced the bench in scoring and did so in limited minutes. Christopher should have another opportunity to showcase his scoring ability Wednesday against the Mavs.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
The Arizona State product was selected by the Rockets with the 24th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. He saw a consistent bench role for the rebuilding squad. In 74 games (two starts), he averaged 7.9 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 0.9 steals in 18.0 minutes. He showed some encouraging upside as a passer and defender, though he struggled with turnovers. He also struggled with his three-pointer, going 56-for-189 (29.6%). That was expected, as he shot just 18-for-59 (30.5%) during his one season in college. Christopher played in Summer League again this year, averaging 19.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 3.4 combined steals-plus-blocks. Those are great counting stats, but he wasn't efficient. He shot just 39.6 percent from the field and 12.5 percent from three. This season, Christopher should remain in a reserve guard role. He'll compete for minutes with Trey Burke, TyTy Washington, Garrison Mathews and Eric Gordon. As a result, he's a deep-league flier or a dynasty/keeper option only. His chances of standard-league relevance are slim.
Christopher was selected by the Rockets with the 24th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. Christopher excelled in his freshman season with Arizona State, averaging 14.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.4 assists across 29.7 minutes per game. The 6-foot-5 guard is a combo guard who thrives in transition, which should bode well for a Rockets team that features superb fast break players in John Wall and Kevin Porter. Christopher has a chance to see some run on the rebuilding Rockets, but he may not be a consistent rotation player unless Eric Gordon gets traded.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Struggling with turnovers
GUtah Jazz
January 4, 2024
Christopher is turning the ball over on 21.5 percent of his possessions in the G League this season, which is the third-highest frequency among all players of at least 200 possessions.
ANALYSIS
Christopher has logged 335 possessions this season, easily surpassing the aforementioned threshold. He leads Salt Lake City and ranks 18th among all G League players in possessions used, translating to a 100:72 AST:TO ratio and 0.824 points per possessions -- which ranks in the 31st percentile. Turnovers are squandering a moderately efficient season from the 22-year-old, who has posted 17.3 points per game on 46.3/32.1/75.8 percent shooting through 18 total contests.
