According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the decision to waive Chriss was made with Damion Lee in mind.

With no days left on Lee's two-way contract, the Warriors had to create space for a guaranteed contract on the NBA roster, or he would have had to spend the remainder of the season in the G League.
