SACRAMENTO (CBS SF) — The Golden State Warriors have waived center Marquese Chriss after suffering a loss to the Sacramento Kings Monday night, according to multiple reports.

The 22-year-old had the only non-guaranteed contract on the Warriors roster. He was averaging 7.3 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game this season.

Anthony Slater, Warriors reporter for The Athletic, presumed that the Warriors’ waiving of Chriss was to clear a roster spot for guard Damion Lee, who is on a 45 day two-way contract. ESPN senior writer Adrian Wojnarowski later reported to confirm this plan.

Guard Ky Bowman is also running out of days on a similar contract. Bowman has played games with the Warriors’ G-League affiliate in Santa Cruz to extend his remaining time with the main team, which is in need of players.
