Los Angeles Lakers sign Tyson Chandler

Los Angeles Lakers sign Tyson Chandler

It should come as little surprise, however, as Chandler was linked to L.A. following the news of his buyout with the Suns.

"Though the 36-year-old has seen his minutes and production decline after almost two decades in the National Basketball Association, he is still an explosive leaper who feasts on lobs".

Tyson Chandler cleared waivers this week after being granted a buyout from the Phoenix Suns, and he immediately signed a veteran minimum contract with the Lakers.

Chandler, 36, had nine rebounds and made clutch defensive plays in 23 minutes of action, helping the Lakers hold off Minnesota 114-110.

The Lakers host Minnesota on Wednesday night. The Lakers were expected to sign Chandler, who will add some much-needed depth to the team's group of centers.

Josh Hart also knocked in 15 of his 21 points from three-point range and Brandon Ingram collected 20 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists for the Lakers, who picked up their third straight win for a 5-6 record. He is the latest addition to a core of veteran Lakers newcomers around James including Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, McGee and Michael Beasley, who returned to practice Tuesday after spending a week away due to an undisclosed personal matter. Chandler was named an All-Star with the New York Knicks in 2012-13 and won an National Basketball Association championship with the Dallas Mavericks in 2010-11.

He spent the past three seasons with Phoenix, and he averaged 6.5 points and 9.1 rebounds per game a year ago.

A California native, Chandler attended Dominguez High School in Compton before going pro.
