I mean, his experience with the Phoenix Suns wasn’t exactly..well, pleasant. However, the young big man is only 23!

Yup, another birthday this week! We had both Tariq Owens (and Trevor Ariza) this past week, and just like Ariza, we’re looking back at another former member of the Phoenix Suns who had his moments during some of the darker times of Suns history.

Marquese Chriss was drafted eighth overall in 2016 by the Sacramento Kings who then traded him to Phoenix for Georgios Papagiannis, Skal Labissiere, the rights to Bogdan Bogdanovic, and the rights to the 13th and 28th in the draft.
