Former Sun Tyson Chandler officially signs with Lakers

Tyson Chandler Josh Hart Ja Vale McGee

Luke Walton believes the addition of Tyson Chandler will have a major impact on the Los Angeles Lakers.

As expected, the Los Angeles Lakers have signed veteran center Tyson Chandler, the team announced in a new release.

Chandler, 36, will be a backup to starting center JaVale McGee for the Lakers, who are desperate for an infusion of size and defensive rebounding.

Josh Hart also knocked in 15 of his 21 points from three-point range and Brandon Ingram collected 20 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists for the Lakers, who picked up their third straight win for a 5-6 record. Rookie center Moe Wagner still hasn't made his debut while returning slowly from a knee injury, and Lakers basketball boss Magic Johnson didn't want to wait any longer to bolster his team's areas of need.

Under the hood, the Fossil Sport comes with a built-in heart rate sensor , GPS , and NFC for payments with Google Pay. There's also a new battery saving mode, bringing an additional two days of telling the time in an "ambient mode".

In a video to Lakers fans, Chandler expressed his excitement to play for L.A.

One thing that isn't open for debate - the Lakers needed Chandler on Wednesday night. "In Tyson Chandler, we addressed that need and so much more".

"I told him he needs an opt-out clause wherever he's at", James said with a smile. Since it's fairly unusual for a team to grant a player a buyout so early in the season, there's a belief that Suns interim general manager James Jones was doing LeBron a favor. Chandler was named an All-Star with the New York Knicks in 2012-13 and won an National Basketball Association championship with the Dallas Mavericks in 2010-11.

He averaged 6.5 points and 9.1 rebounds in 46 starts for the Suns during the 2017-18 campaign. Chandler has made more than 55 percent of his shots in each of the past 13 seasons, and his career.596 shooting percentage is the third-best in National Basketball Association history. He was the second pick in the 2001 draft by the Clippers, who immediately traded his rights to Chicago.
