Semaj Christon has been focusing on his shooting this offseason.
Christon shot 47.1 percent from the field during the summer league with averages of 16.8 points and 4.3 assists, but hit just 19 percent of his 3-point attempts while playing overseas in Italy. Christon showed some potential during the summer, but the Thunder complicated things by adding Ronnie Price in free agency. Unless the Thunder plan to keep four PGs, Christon may end up in the D-League or head overseas again. Sep 18 - 9:48 AM

Date:

Semaj Christon is expected to join the D-League after the Thunder's training camp.

The Thunder already have 15 guaranteed contracts and three point guards in Russell Westbrook, Cameron Payne and Ronnie Price, so this isn't a surprise. We'll keep an eye on his progress in the D-League.

Thunder sign G Semaj Christon.

Christon's chances of making an impact went from remote to nonexistent with the arrival of Ronnie Price. He'll be behind Russell Westbrook, Cameron Payne and Price on the depth chart.

Semaj Christon will likely start the 2016-17 season in the D-League.

Christon had been eyeing a bench role with the Thunder, but the team's recent signing of Ronnie Price will likely send the 23-year-old to the D-League for the 2016-17 season. While Christon has a strong showing in summer league, he won't be a fantasy factor this upcoming season.

Semaj Christon scored 22 points vs. the Heat on Friday with four assists, two boards, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

The Thunder are in the market for a third-string point guard behind Russell Westbrook and Cameron Payne, and Anthony Slater of the Oklahoman said he wouldn't be surprised if it was Christon. He shot 10-of-14 from the field on Friday and had a strong week in Orlando, but he still won't be a factor in fantasy leagues if he lands a deal with OKC.
Jul 8 - 12:06 PM

Semaj Christon scored 23 points with seven assists in Friday's overtime win over the Clippers.

Christon capped off his excellent performance by nailing the game-winning free throw, and it's possible that his play this summer has created some buzz around the league. Christon came into Friday's game with averages of 13.8 points and 6.8 boards, but he will have a hard time making the Thunder's final roster for the 2015-16 season.

Xavier PG Semaj Christon was taken with the 55th pick in the draft on Thursday, but he was promptly traded to the Thunder by way of Charlotte.

The Heat officially drafted Christon but they traded their pick to the Hornets, who in turn sent it along to OKC. At the end of the day, Christon will be fighting for playing time on the Thunder bench behind Russell Westbrook and Reggie Jackson, and it would take a spate of injuries to thrust him into a fantasy-relevant role.
