Lakers sign Chandler to fill need at center

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. The Lakers will try to rebound from that defeat against the Timberwolves, a team that defeated Los Angeles on October 29.

More than that, though, he's just grateful to be able to play in Los Angeles. Here's the preview of the next Lakers-Timberwolves matchup.

This is an intriguing theory as James and Jones both have developed a close relationship over the years after spending much time together as players with the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers.

During a bench role with the Suns this year, Chandler averaged 3.7 points per game in 12.7 minutes. And until Wednesday night, he had played 1,086 career games - but zero with his hometown Lakers.

However, Chandler comes to a team that gives up the most points in the paint in the NBA, according to NBA.com.


Pascal Siakam scored 21 points, Serge Ibaka had 14 points and 14 rebounds while Kyle Lowry added 16 points and eight assists for the Raptors.

Rondo ended up getting a three game suspension, Paul for two games and Brandon Ingram for four games. Even though we definitely are not rooting for the Timberwolves, it is always a great sight to see D Rose play well. But since then, the Lakers have won two of the last three games in last-minute fashion.

The Los Angeles Lakers are coming off an impressive 114-110 win at home over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night. Thus, creating a center presence the Lakers haven't had in a while.

"It's been a insane 48 hours, but it was great", Chandler said after his Lakers debut Wednesday night, as quoted by Clutch Points. His field goal percentage on the year is 46 percent. He is eligible to be traded February 6, one day before the trade deadline.
