Marquese Chriss has convinced the Mavericks. The inside player, who arrived to alleviate the casualties due to COVID, has signed a two-year contract with the Texas organization after extinguishing the two 10-day agreements that he had available.
To make this move, the Mavs have cut Willie Cauley-Stein just before, since they had no holes in their roster to guarantee the contract to Chriss, who has gone from being an eventual resource to a necessary piece in Jason Kidd’s rotation. .
In the 12 games he has played since arriving in Dallas, Chriss has averaged 6.8 points and 3.9 rebounds in 11.8 minutes per night, while also amassing a fantastic 46.2% from 3-point range.
Coinciding with the arrival of Chriss to the team, the Mavericks have improved their performance ostensibly; so much so that they have won nine of their last twelve meetings to move into fifth place in the Western Conference at 24-19.
