Suns reach buyout agreement with Tyson Chandler

  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Tyson Chandler Brandon Ingram

The Phoenix 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. "We have to be even greater, but it's definitely good to have him on the floor, I'll tell you that", James said on Saturday. "A guy who plays hard, a guy who's very smart and another champion to add to the champions that we have in this system here today, and it adds depth in our frontcourt, which we have had trouble with at times". With him making a little over $13 million this season, it was only a matter of time before the two sides parted ways. Chandler is owed $13.6 million this season if he is claimed on waivers. JaVale McGee has flourished as the starting center for the Lakers this season, averaging 15.5 points and 7.5 rebounds.

But the Lakers don't need prime Tyson Chandler.

The New York Times first reported that Chandler and the Suns were agreeing on a buyout. The last player to receive one in November was Nemanja Nedovic by the Golden State Warriors in November 2014.


Chandler was drafted by the Clippers as the second-overall pick of the 2001 draft, but was immediately traded to the Bulls. His productivity has been on the decline in recent years.

For his career, the 7-foot-1, 240-pound Chandler, the second overall pick in the 2001 National Basketball Association draft by the Los Angeles Clippers and traded that night along with Brian Skinner to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for Elton Brand, carries averages of 8.6 points and 9.3 rebounds in 28.2 minutes 1,086 games (875 starts).

Information from ESPN's Bobby Marks was used in this report.
