Washington power forward Marquese Chriss has been making a move up many teams’ draft boards over the last few days and it looks like he will finish as a lottery pick. The Sacramento Kings took the forward with their eight overall pick.
However, it was reported by ESPN’s Andy Katz that Chriss has been traded to the Phoenix Suns. He also said that it did not involve fourth overall pick Dragan Bender, so they end up with both talented players.
Kings say they are talking about trading 8.

This could be big news for the Suns if those reports are true. It could be big for the Kings depending on what they get in return.
During the 2015-16 season, Marquese Chriss averaged 13.8 points and 5.4 rebounds.
