The Denver Nuggets have bolstered their roster following the 2022 NBA Draft, drafting Kansas forward, Christian Braun. Not only will he add much-needed wing depth, he’ll add a little pepper and a squeeze of lemon to a Mile High City roster that’s already sizzling with talent.

Nuggets fans are salivating at the thought of starters Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. returning in 2022-23 at full strength to team with the likes of back-to-back MVP Nikola Jokic and the number 21 pick in the NBA draft,

Christian Braun.

Braun's brother, Parker, as well as his mother, aunt and uncle, have played college basketball for Missouri. Parker currently plays for Santa Clara University. His mother's family was inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame. He also has two brothers, one older and one younger.

He committed to playing college basketball for Kansas over offers from Kansas State, Illinois and Missouri, among there's.

As a freshman at Kansas, Braun averaged 5.3 points and 2.9 rebounds per game, earning Big 12 All-Freshman Team honors.

In the Finals against the North Carolina Tar Heels, he had 12 points and 12 rebounds for his fifth double-double of the season, which helped Kansas rally from a 40–25 halftime deficit. In the final possession of that game, he defended Caleb Love's three-point attempt, sealing the win and giving him his first NCAA title On April 24, 2022, Braun declared for the 2022 NBA draft, while maintaining his college eligibility.

“With Christian Braun we got a guy that goes really hard, brings energy every time he’s on the court. Winner, three state championships in high school, national championship this year, think he’s got a lot of upside as a two-way player.”
