Tyson Chandler to join Lakers after Suns buyout

Tyson Chandler to join Lakers after Suns buyout

Chandler and the Suns have agreed to buyout his $13 million-plus contract, a decision that the two sides had reportedly agreed to for some time now.

However, the Lakers' defense is 18.3 points per 100 possessions worse when McGee is off the floor, meaning Chandler's role, as well as his skillset, could prove to be a good fit with Los Angeles. Despite adding the world's best basketball player, the Lakers have struggled to win games. With such an inexperienced core as well, Chandler brings championship pedigree to a young locker room, something that could pay major dividends for the Lakers come playoff time. Will Tyson Chandler help solve that issue? That said, if the Lakers are counting on getting the Chandler they remember as a feared defender during his time in Dallas and NY, they may be out of luck. He also gives the Lakers a shot-blocking defensive presence when people get beat on the perimeter. Over the course of the season, no team has given up more than 71.9 percent shooting in the restricted area.

The 36-year-old center appeared in seven games this season for the Suns, backing up No. 1 overall draft pick Deandre Ayton.

Chandler initially signed with the Suns as a free agent on July 9, 2015, and played in four seasons with the club.

There are various reasons why a move like this had to happen NOW for the Lakers.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski added that Chandler has been "anxious to find a new home amid the Suns rebuild".

For Tyson Chandler, signing with Los Angeles is a bit of a homecoming, because he grew up in the neighboring area just south of Fresno, California. The next chapter of Tyson Chandler's career begins now in LA!
