Marquese Chriss open to returning to Warriors if given the chance

Marquese Chriss, Warriors

Marquese Chriss is still open to returning to the Golden State Warriors after surprisingly getting waived by the team following Monday night’s game.

When asked by Logan Murdock of  NBC Sports Bay Area if he’s open to returning on a 10-day contract later this season, Marquese said that he “would like” to be with the team.

“We’ve had conversations about certain things to try and make things work but I think that’s something that I would try to keep between myself and them, just because I don’t know any situation that might come up,” Chriss shared.

“But who knows? I would like to be here. So eventually, if that happens, I would be all for it.”

Marquese Chriss is eligible to return to the Warriors later this season if they sign him to a 10-day contract once he clears NBA waivers.  However, it wouldn’t be a surprise if a team decides to claim him off waivers in the next couple of weeks.

The 22-year-old  averaged 7.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 37 games with the Warriors. He has also proven this season that he deserves a spot on an NBA roster.

The Warriors’ shocking move was made because they needed to free up a roster spot for Damion Lee so they can give him a fully guaranteed deal.

Chriss was a former lottery pick of the 2016 draft and was acquired by the Phoenix Suns from the Houston Rockets in a trade. He’s is seeking to join his fifth team in the past three seasons.
