Rockets F Chriss wants opportunity or trade

Houston Rockets forward Marquese Chriss wants to be traded if the team is not willing to give him more playing time, his agent told Yahoo Sports on Monday. "Marquese didn't ask to be traded to Houston," Aaron Goodwin, Chriss' agent, told Yahoo. "The Rockets are a great organization and the kid has done everything they've asked of him to get on the floor. If it's not going to happen there, we just want him to be treated fairly."

Chriss, 21, was dealt to Houston by the Phoenix Suns in August, in a deal that also sent Brandon Knight to the Rockets and Ryan Anderson and De'Anthony Melton to Phoenix. He has played in just 15 games this season, averaging 1.9 points and 1.8 rebounds in just 6.7 minutes per game. He has played more than 10 minutes in just three games this year. An injury to center Clint Capela did not boost Chriss' playing time, as the Rockets opted to sign forward Kenneth Faried to fill the gap in the rotation.

Chriss was drafted eighth overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2016 out of Washington and then traded to the Suns on draft night. He averaged 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds in 21.2 minutes per game in 154 contests (124 starts) over his first two seasons with the Suns before being traded to the Rockets. The NBA trade deadline is Feb. 7.
