The Golden State Warriors made the decision to waive Marquese Chriss after Monday night's loss to the Sacramento Kings.

The move was reportedly done in order to clear a roster spot for Damion Lee, who signed a multi-year deal with the team, but that does not mean Chriss will be gone for long. In fact, the Warriors are already interested in bringing him back.

And it appears that interest is mutual, with Chriss eager to return to the Bay area and continue his career with Golden State.

Chriss will have to first clear waivers, however, and could draw interest from other teams considering he is a former lottery pick. Still, the Warriors were his fourth home in the league, despite the fact that he is only 22 years old. That certainly bodes well for their chances at retaining the former Washington Huskies star.

This seems to be a move that was strictly business related, and not to do with his play on the floor. The Warriors wanted to add a two-way player to the roster and Chriss happened to be the odd-man out.

Chriss has yet to reach his full potential with career averages of 7.5 points and 18.9 minutes per game. For a rebuilding team like the Warriors, he serves as someone with potential who can get better with increased playing time.
