Chandler to be bought out by Suns, sign with Lakers
07 November 2018, 03:49 | Anna Jefferson
The Lakers are expected to land Chandler, a Los Angeles native, once he clears waivers, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. A person with direct knowledge of the situation confirmed the buyout plan to The Associated Press on Saturday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the Suns had not yet revealed it publicly. In seven games this season, Chandler has averaged just 14.2 minutes per game.
Chandler, 36, is in his 18th season, and was slated to make US$13.6 million (S$18.7 million) this season in the final campaign of a four-year contract with Phoenix.
And with the Suns no closer to winning than the day he signed with them, and Chandler being 36, it makes ideal sense that he'd be looking for a new home. Chandler's playing time was diminished this season due to the presence of standout rookie center Deandre Ayton, the No. 1 overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft. While Tyson Chandler is still capable of holding down a decent dosage of bench minutes, Phoenix has shown a tendency to play more small ball this season and deploy Ryan Anderson as their backup center. Chandler is going home. Currently, starter JaVale McGee is the only true center on the roster besides third-year man Ivica Zubac. He was a one-time defensive player of the year, as well as an All Star during his three impressive years with the Knicks. Despite adding the world's best basketball player, the Lakers have struggled to win games. (Chandler last averaged more than 1.4 blocks per game in 2006-07 at age 24.) However, as he's aged, Chandler has no longer excelled in that regard.
Phoenix's first-year head coach Igor Kokoskov said the reason why Chandler did not play was a "matchup decision".
