Pima men’s hoops signs Dan Majerle’s son Max, former Central Michigan starter

Max Majerle, the son of NBA great Dan Majerle (who emerged from a stellar career at Central Michigan) is headed back to Arizona to play for Pima Community College in 2024-25 after departing from his dad’s alma mater.

Max Majerle, a Class of 2021 graduate of Phoenix Arcadia High School, did not play for Central Michigan for medical reasons last season (he had knee surgery when he played at Arcadia).

As a freshman with the Chippewas in 2022-23, the 6-foot-4 guard played in 30 games with 17 starts at off guard. He averaged 4.0 points, 2.7 rebounds and dished out 19 assists.

Max Majerle will have one season of eligibility at Pima under coach Brian Peabody, who employs an NBA-style high-scoring attack, before having the opportunity play again for a four-year university.

The younger Majerle was named to the Arizona Republic All-Area team as a senior in 2020-21.

In his three-year, 48-game career at Arcadia, he averaged 13.3 points, 2.6 assists and 5.2 rebounds per game. He played at Notre Dame Prep as a freshman.

He played a postgraduate season at Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, N.H., in 2021-22 and was rated a two-star recruit by recruiting services.

The elder Majerle played for 14 years (1988-2002) as a three-time NBA All-Star for the Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat. He went on to serve as head coach at Grand Canyon (2013-14).

Dan Majerle’s No. 44 is retired by Central Michigan.
