The Portland Trail Blazers has made a noteworthy move recently. The forward Marquese Chriss is reported to sign with the Blazers in a non-guaranteed deal surprising even for the gossip to make news. The Sacramento selected No. 8 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft has played just two games last season with Golden State only to fall for a right leg injury on Dec. 26, 2000.
Chriss was quite a show in the last season appearing in 59 games including 21 starts and a 9.3 points average and 6.2 rebounds in 20.3 minutes per game. The 24-year-old powerhouse is also set to fight for a roster spot following his latest entry to the team to establish himself in the frontcourt behind starter Robert Covington and backup Larry Nance Jr., given the player potential to grow. Blazers is also hopeful of benefiting from the trade along with the player’s playtime step up and overall performance advantage.
