Tyson Chandler to join Lakers after Suns buyout

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

Phoenix buying out veteran center Tyson Chandler

The Suns are buying out Chandler's contract, a move that will allow the 18-year veteran-once he clears waivers-to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers.

After clearing waivers on a contract buyout with the Phoenix Suns, center Tyson Chandler plans to sign a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, league sources told ESPN.

Chandler now plays for the Phoenix Suns, though Phoenix is building for the future and is willing to part with veteran pieces.

The letter explains that Sen. "I did that as a way to grab attention", the letter states. At the rally, Trump also attacked Montana Democratic Sen.

While the 36-year-old is not the All-NBA defender he once was, Chandler would give the Lakers some much-needed depth at center as Kyle Kuzma, Johnathan Williams and Ivica Zubac have each spent time backing up JaVale McGee at the five for Los Angeles so far this season.

Chandler, 36, is in the final season of a four-year, $52-million deal signed with Phoenix in July 15 and is making $13.6 million this season, meaning he will nearly certainly pass through waivers and be available to sign with the team of his choice. Chandler wound up debuting with Chicago, and has also played with New Orleans, Dallas, New York and Charlotte before joining the Suns in 2015.

Chandler was drafted by the Los Angeles Clippers with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2001 National Basketball Association draft, but has never played for either the Clippers or the Lakers.
