Williams is likely to make the Suns' roster to begin the 2016-17 season, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports. "Chances are, he'll have a spot [for Williams]," Suns GM Ryan McDonough said. "We told him to plan on being around our group and keep coming in to workouts. He's a native Phoenician so he's here most of the time. He spent a ton of time in the gym and I think you see the improvement in his body and game as well."
Chriss, who missed the Suns' final three Las Vegas Summer League games due to an illness, finished summer play with averages of 10.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 0.7 blocks in 30.3 minutes per game over his three appearances.
