NBA Free-Agents 2011: Tyson Chandler Adds Great Post-Presence to NY Knicks
Tyson Chandler played a key role for the championship Dallas Mavericks last season, but has recently decided to search for a new home. New York wasted very little time adding the veteran Center who averaged 10.1 PPG, 9.4 RPG, and 1.1 BPG last season. Not only did he have a solid regular season, but also played a huge part in clogging up the middle against LeBron James and Dwayne Wade in the 2011 NBA Finals.
The New York Knicks have been in dire need of a defensive stud to instill some fear in opposing teams after constantly giving up over 100 points last season. With the signing of Tyson Chandler the Knicks now have a very talented frontcourt that will make it tremendously difficult to score in the paint. The duo of Chandler and Amar’e Stoudemire will be thrill to watch.
It has been rumored that once Chandler signed with the organization, Chauncey Billups would be simultaneously waived. Although the waiving of Billups has not yet been reported, one would imagine that New York is planning to do so while adding a speedy and unselfish point-guard who could successfully distribute the ball around the court.
This was a huge early move for New York in an shortened offseason, however, exhibiting much aggressiveness it doesn’t look like the Knickerbockers are finished making moves quite yet.
