NBA Finals Live: Why Mark Cuban Would Be Foolish to Resign Tyson Chandler
NBA Finals 2011 will have Cuban thinking about the future
Win or lose, the show must go on in Dallas. If you are Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, you are going to have to make roster decisions no matter what the outcome of the series against the Heat. That largely means deciding what they are going to do with Tyson Chandler.
Chandler has been invaluable for the Dallas Mavericks. His presence on the boards, as a shot blocker, and a patrolman in the paint has taken the Mavericks from an ordinary defensive team to one of the NBA’s top defensive teams.
The question for Cuban is: is Tyson Chandler worth it?
Cuban would be taking a big risk if he brought Chandler back. There is going to be quite a few teams taking interest in the center but Cuban can’t get caught in a bidding war that forces him to overpay. After all, though Chandler is a good defensive presence it doesn’t mean that he’s worth the kind of money he’ll command.
He’s never played a full season. While he’s played 73 games this season, the last two seasons prior he’s played less than 51 games in each. He’s got very little offensive game. The Mavericks could be in a bad situation if they give Chandler money. He’s the kind of guy who’d be a tough contract with max salary.
Cuban should let Chandler go unless he can get him on the cheap.
