Doug Christie Biography
Doug Christie was born May 9, 1970, in Seattle, Washington and is a basketball player who is currently a free agent.
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 later that season, where he was used sparingly. In 1994 the Lakers traded him to the New York Knicks. Again, he was not played often. In 1995 he was again traded mid-season, this time to the Toronto Raptors. 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.
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 Second Team; also he was recognized as one of the best 3pt-shooters at that moment. In 2004, however, he was traded to the Orlando Magic for Cuttino Mobley. Christie 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. 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, signalling 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. In January 2007, Christie attempted a comeback when he signed a 10-day contract with the Los Angeles Clippers.
