The Spurs have reportedly announced that they have officially waived Marquese Chriss.

Shams Charania of The Athletic reports that San Antonio is making this move to create a roster opening to sign free-agent center Gorgui Dieng.

PATFO acquired Chriss from the Golden State Warriors in exchange for the draft rights to 2015 second-rounder Cady Lalanne minutes before the end of the trade deadline this Thursday.

The former lottery selection was teammates with Dejounte Murray at the University of Washington during the 2015-16 season and never appeared in a game for the Silver and Black.
