Chriss has fully recovered from a broken leg suffered last December and will compete for a roster spot in Blazers' organization.

The last two seasons he spent with the Golden State Warriors. In the 2020-21 NBA campaign, he played only two games and registered 6.5 points, 6.5 rebounds.

The 24-year-old has NBA career averages of 8 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 1.1 assists per 258 contests.

The 2.06-meter power forward was selected with the 8th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft by the Sacramento Kings. However, Chriss was traded to the Phoenix Suns on the same draft night.

Marquese Chriss had a successful rookie season in Phoenix, averaging 9.2 points and 4.3 rebounds. He played in all 82 games - the only Suns player to do so in the 2016-17 season. Chriss was named to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team, becoming the 14th player in franchise history to receive such honor.
