Watch Chriss showcase passing skills in Warriors scrimmage


Marquese Chriss entered Warriors training camp last season on a non-guaranteed contract.

One of the reasons he earned a spot on the Opening Night roster was the passing skills that he showcased during preseason games.

And during Golden State's intrasquad scrimmage a couple of weeks ago at the franchise's voluntary minicamp, he dropped some dimes.

"I think the players like playing with him," coach Steve Kerr said back in early October 2019. "He's pretty good in high screen-and-roll, running dribble handoffs.

"He knows what he's doing so I think he's a really intriguing prospect."

Over the Warriors' final 10 games before the season was shutdown because of the coronavirus pandemic, Chriss averaged 3.2 assists in 26.8 minutes.

The 23-year-old really sees the floor, and anticipates passing angles well. Being able to keep the ball and offense moving should bode well for him in terms of carving out a consistent role next season.

If he focuses on getting Steph Curry and Klay Thompson open shots -- either with passes or good screens -- additional opportunities should be there for Chriss.
