Lakers sign Chandler to fill need at center

Lakers make signing of veteran center Chandler official

The Lakers improved to 5-6 while the Timberwolves fell to 4-8.

Nearly three weeks ago, Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul got into each other's face following Brandon Ingram's temper tantrum about being called for a foul.

The Lakers spoiled the game-high 31-point effort of Derrick Rose, who knocked in back-to-back threes that put the Timberwolves within a point, 110-111, with just 66 seconds left.

Chandler became a free agent after receiving a buyout from the Phoenix Suns and was free to sign with any team after clearing waivers. According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN, it was a move that the Lakers were able to do as there is a theory that James former teammate and current Phoenix Suns general manager James Jones parted ways with center Tyson Chandler as a favor to help the four-time league MVP out. "We got him out at the end of practice and he went in for treatment", Walton said. "I'd like to say it is going to be better the next game".

Timberwolves guard Jimmy Butler will play on Wednesday against the Lakers, coach Tom Thibodeau said after shootaround. He said he was unsure of Ball's status for the team's game against the Kings.

James also joked that Jones "needs an opt-out clause" in his contract so he can come work for LeBron's team if LeBron ever decides to go that route.

Rondo is averaging 10.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 7.0 assists per game and shooting 52.1 percent from the floor, 50.0 percent from the 3-point line and 75.0 percent from the charity stripe. "I just want to take pressure off him".

"I've been on the other side and played the villain, now it's great to be on this side".

"Chandler's game bears some resemblance to starting center JaVale McGee, as both men pride themselves on above-the-rim scoring, rebounding and defense". If they can stretch their winning run, they will be in the positive in terms of their win-loss record for the first time this season.
