Doug Christie Career

Los Angeles Lakers (1993–1994)

Christie was selected 17th overall in the 1992 NBA draft by the Seattle SuperSonics. However, because of contract difficulties, he never played for the Sonics and was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, along with Benoit Benjamin, in exchange for Sam Perkins later that season, where in his first game his name was spelled incorrectly on his jersey as “Chrisite.” He was used sparingly in Los Angeles.

New York Knicks (1994–1996)

In 1994, the Lakers traded Christie to the New York Knicks for two second-round draft picks. Again, he did not play often.

Toronto Raptors (1996–2000)

In 1996, Christie was again traded mid-season, this time to the Toronto Raptors in a package with Herb Williams, for Willie Anderson and Victor Alexander. He stayed with the Raptors until the conclusion of the season in 2000. By then, Christie had picked up his scoring and had been a consistent starter for the Raptors.

Sacramento Kings (2000–2005)

At the end of the 2000 season, Christie was traded to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for forward Corliss Williamson. In Sacramento, Christie became the Kings’ popular starting shooting guard and developed into one of the league’s best defenders, perennially named to the NBA All-Defensive Team; also he was recognized as one of the best 3pt-shooters during this time.

Alongside Jason Williams, Peja Stojaković, Chris Webber, and Vlade Divac, the Kings starting five would become known as “The Greatest Show on Court.” Christie’s defense helped the Kings rise in the NBA ranks, becoming a perennial playoff contender and eventually a championship contender, leading the league in wins in 2001–02.

Orlando Magic (2005)

In 2005, Christie was traded to the Orlando Magic for Cuttino Mobley and Michael Bradley. he left the Kings as second all-time in total steals. He was unhappy about the trade and played only a few games before being sidelined with bone spurs. Following Christie’s ankle surgery, the Orlando Magic released him on August 11, 2005 under the new NBA collective bargaining agreement one-time amnesty clause.

Dallas Mavericks (2005)

Christie signed a one-year contract with the Dallas Mavericks shortly thereafter. Due to a slow healing surgically repaired left ankle, Christie was waived by the Dallas Mavericks on November 25, 2005, signaling his impending retirement. He had left the team the week prior to have his surgically repaired left ankle examined by his personal physician. In seven games with the Dallas Mavericks, Christie averaged 3.7 points and 2.0 assists.

Los Angeles Clippers (2007)

In January 2007, Christie attempted a comeback when he signed a 10-day contract with the Los Angeles Clippers. After the All-Star break, Christie, on his second 10-day contract, decided to part ways with the team. In 2014, Christie was named to a team assembled by Dennis Rodman as part of his “basketball diplomacy” effort in North Korea with the job of playing an exhibition match against the North Korean Senior National Team to celebrate the birthday of Kim Jong-un.
