The Dallas Mavericks have signed forward Marquese Chriss to a multi-year contract, the team announced Saturday.
It’s reportedly a two-year deal for Chriss.
The 24-year-old Chriss (6-9, 240) was in the midst of his third 10-day contract under the COVID-related hardship allowance and has averaged 6.8 points, 3.9 rebounds and 11.9 minutes in 12 games with Dallas. Chriss has scored in double figures in three games with the Mavericks.
The six-year veteran was selected by Sacramento with the eighth overall pick of the 2016 NBA Draft and subsequently traded to Phoenix, where he earned NBA All-Rookie Second Team honors in his first season. Chriss played collegiately for one season at Washington.
In an additional move, Dallas has requested waivers on center Willie Cauley-Stein. The seven-year veteran, who has been out due to personal reasons, last played for the Mavericks on November 27 against the Wizards.
