Tyson Chandler expected to sign with Lakers

Tyson Chandler expected to sign with Lakers

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Tyson Chandler plans to sign the minimum contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, after finalizing a buyout on the $13.6 million left with the Phoenix Suns. Many people are probably surprised he stuck around in Phoenix for so long with the lack of minutes and opportunities, and many benchings in favor of young players.

Adding Chandler is an excellent move for the Lakers at this point in the season. The Lakers tried Kyle Kuzma as a small-ball center but it didn't lend to positive results, as they've since turned to two-way signee Jonathan Williams. You can not win in this league without having somebody to protect the rim at most junctures of the game. His productivity has been on the decline in recent years.




With all signs pointing to Chandler joining the Lakers, what can he bring to the team? Chandler is a well-respected player around the league, and he will likely help improve the situation in LA. Imagine having 48 minutes of big men to throw lobs to. He's seen minimal time off the bench through seven games this year. 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.

James, who is widely considered the best player of his generation, is expected to take on the role of a player-coach on the court, but also said he was eager to improve his own game. This guy is certainly going to make an immediate impact on the Lakers. Tyson Chandler, 36 years old, is a valued commodity for his rare mix defensive rebounding, rim protection, and freak athleticism. The next chapter of Tyson Chandler's career begins now in LA!
