The Houston Rockets will not pick up the fourth-year option on the contract of former lottery pick Marquese Chriss, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Chriss, selected No. 8 overall by the Phoenix Suns in the 2016 draft, has struggled to make an impact in just over two seasons in the Association. Through his first two years with Phoenix, the 6-foot-10 forward averaged 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds in 21.2 minutes per game.

On Aug. 31 this summer, the Suns traded the 21-year-old Chriss along with Brandon Knight to the Rockets in exchange for Ryan Anderson and De'Anthony Melton. In one appearance with Houston this season, Chriss recorded four points, two rebounds, and one block in eight minutes.
