Earlier this month, the Golden State Warriors waived 22-year-old big Marquese Chriss in order to free up a roster spot for Damion Lee. A week later, however, Chriss is set to return to the Dubs.

According to reports, the Warriors are planning to bring back Chriss on a two-way deal. It means he'll likely spend much of his time playing for the team's G-League affiliate in Santa Cruz.

While the team is certainly happy to have Chriss back, head coach Steve Kerr couldn't hide his surprise that the 22-year-old big man was not picked up by other teams after he was waived.

“It did,” Kerr said when asked if he was surprised Marquese Chriss was available on a two-way contract, per Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle .

“I guess the one thing that maybe hurt him in terms of not being picked up is just the trade deadline. … We're the beneficiaries of that.”

Basically, with the trade deadline quickly approaching, teams are trying to keep their rosters open for any potential deals.

The 6-foot-9, 240-pound power forward was drafted with the eighth pick of the 2016 NBA Draft after a strong freshman season at the University of Washington. However, despite his potential, Chriss has struggled to find a consistent role in the NBA.

In four seasons, Chriss has been on five different NBA teams and has yet to average over 10 points or six rebounds a game.

This season, in 17.7 minutes per game with the Warriors, Chriss has put up 7.4 points and 5.4 rebounds per game while shooting a career-high 48.5 percent from the field. Since he is on a two-way contract, this likely isn't the last time we'll see Chriss, especially if the Dubs are active at the trade deadline.
