Marquese Chriss
PF, 6’10, 233lbs, 19 years old, 1 year of experience

Played all 82 games and had 75 starts, so certainly given his opportunities as a rookie. The team stuck with him after a very slow start, which paid off with a very strong finish. Chriss committed an enormous amount of fouls, which tempered his overall production, but in between whistles he was an athletic, aggressive, highlight-reel player who showed both stretch and defensive potential.. Chriss has already proven that if he is able to catch the ball on the move, it might not end well for whoever challenges him. He is also already a threat in the pick-and-roll and transition games. If he can further hone the jump shot, his offence will be good, while if he can maximise his potential both defending around the basket and out on perimeter traps - at which he has both the speed and the confidence - then his defence could be really good.

Player Plan: Three years of rookie scale salary remaining. Keep, develop and enjoy.
