Michigan State basketball's Max Christie hiring agent, staying in NBA draft

It's gonna be one-and-done for Max Christie.

The Michigan State basketball guard, who completed his freshman season in East Lansing before entering the NBA draft this spring, is hiring an agent, forfeiting the rest of his college eligibility.

MSU coach Tom Izzo said "after taking some time the last few months to focus on preparation and evaluation," Christie and his family decided to put all of their energy behind getting drafted this summer.

"I know this has been a lifelong dream for Max and I am excited for him as he takes the next step and continues the process and journey to becoming an NBA player," Izzo said in a statement released Monday evening.
