Limoges picks up point guard Christon
Limoges CSP has upgraded its backcourt with tall playmaker Semaj Christon, who will make his 7DAYS EuroCup debut with the club next season. Christon (1.91 meters, 26 years old) arrives from Hapoel Beer Sheva of the Israeli League, for whom he posted 18.8 points, 4.0 assists and 2.1 rebounds in eight games played last season. Christon started his pro career with Oklahoma City Blue of the NBA G League. He moved to Europe the next season with Pesaro of Italy, ranking 11th in domestic play with 14.3 points per game. That earned him a chance with the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder, where he spent most of the 2016-17 season appearing in 64 games for averages of 15 minutes, 2.9 points and 2.0 assists. The following year, he played for Guangzhou of the Chinese League and Santeros de Aguada of the Puerto Rican League. Prior to turning pro, Christon played two years for Xavier University.
