What Tyson Chandler brings to the Lakers

NBA Free Agent Rumors: Lakers To Sign Tyson Chandler After Buyout With Suns, Clearing Waivers

Chandler now plays for the Phoenix Suns, though Phoenix is building for the future and is willing to part with veteran pieces. He signed a four-year, $52 million contract with the Suns in July 2015.

Chandler is a native of Los Angeles, and he has been anxious to find a new home amid the Suns' rebuild.

That, according to Stein, is the Lakers, who are getting solid minutes out of JaVale McGee in the pivot, but are severely lacking while he is off the floor. But the Lakers received a veteran presence to be added to their veteran group, much of whom signed sign the team this summer.

England consult dossier on how to beat New Zealand
New Zealand opened their autumn campaign by beating Japan 31-69 in Tokyo on Saturday, with a mainly second-string side. Jones also believes rugby games should have two referees in light of the increasing number of controversial decisions.


Tyson Chandler is about to be on the move.

However, the Lakers will have to wait a few days for Chandler to clear waivers before he's able to join them. When McGee sits, however, the Lakers' defensive rating has ballooned to 118.4 points per 100 possessions, which would be the league's worst defensive rating.

The Lakers kick off their season on October 18 with a visit to the Portland Trail Blazers before playing their first home game against the Houston Rockets at the Staples Center on October 20. Also, adding him will greatly reduce the amount of minutes McGee plays, helping him stay fresh throughout the rest of the season.

Moving on to the storage options, it seems like the device will be only available with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage. In China, OnePlus released a new color for the OnePlus 6T this week, Thunder Purple , and we're officially jealous.


The 7-foot-1 Chandler is averaging 3.7 points and 5.6 rebounds in seven games for the Suns this season. The Lakers may have a lot of talent, but this acquisition fills a hole they desperately needed to fill.

Chandler played his high school basketball in Compton, California, part of Los Angeles County.

And for Chandler, joining the Lakers allows him to leave a situation in Phoenix that seems to be going nowhere right now for one that could land him in the playoffs. The next chapter of Tyson Chandler's career begins now in LA!
