(REUTERS) – Los Angeles local Tyson Chandler is in favor of an attack by signing an agreement with the Lakers after the Phoenix Dog has gotten rid of it.
After Chandler released the contract from last year when he had entered into an agreement with the Phoenix Suns, he turned to his native team.
"We love the fact that we are going to get another veteran," said Lakers star LeBron James (on the sixth night, November 3). "The guy who plays hard, the guy who is very clever and another champion to add to the champions that we have in this system here today, and this makes the depth of our frontcourt, which we sometimes had difficulty with."
The dog officially announced redemption on Sunday.
"We want to thank Tyson for his contribution to Suns during the last three plus seasons," vice president of basketball operations James Jones statement. "Given Tyson's career, today's movement gives him the opportunity to take on a new opportunity, while letting our young players continue to grow. Tyson is an advanced professional and we want him all the best." Chandler's play time was reduced this season due to the presence of a seat at the youth center Deandre Ayton, which is the No. 1 overall choice of the 2018 NBA Draft.
"I am grateful for my time at Phoenix, and I want to thank my teammates, my coaches, the front office and fans for a great experience," said Chandler. "I wish them the best, and I'm excited about the next stage in my career."
Chandler, 36, is in his 18th season, and a four-year contract with Phoenix in the final campaign of $ 13.6 million (S $ 18.7 million) was signed this season.
Seven Foot-1 Chandler averaged 3.7 points and 5.6 bounce seven-match dogs this season.
Chandler's career average is 8.6 points and 9.3 rebounds with 1,086 games with the Chicago Bulls (2001-06), New Orleans Hornets (2006-09), Charlotte Bobcats (2009-10), Dallas Mavericks (2010-11, 2014-15) New York Knicks (2011-14) and Suns (2015-18).
He was a NBA defender in the 2011-12 season and played the All-Star Game next season.
