Former Sun Tyson Chandler officially signs with Lakers

Former Sun Tyson Chandler officially signs with Lakers

That's right: Lord forgive James, but it's time to get back to the old LeBron by tossing a headband on.

Chandler will provide needed frontcourt depth for the Lakers, who have relied on JaVale McGee and undersized forwards to guard big men during their 4-6 start to the season.

James, Kuzma and Josh Hart played major roles in the Lakers' third win in four games, but they all directed praise toward Chandler, who joined the Lakers on Tuesday after reaching a buyout agreement with Phoenix.

Chandler went to school in the Compton section of L.A. but has been accustomed to a hostile reception at Staples Center, so he will lap up any adulation from Lakers fans.

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

Tyson Chandler, meanwhile, made his debut for the Lakers just days after signing as a free agent following his contract being bought out by the Phoenix Suns. Leonard, who missed the last two games with a sore ankle, also added 11 rebounds for the Raptors, who have won five straight since losing to Milwaukee on October 29.Pascal Siakam scored 21 points, Serge Ibaka had 14 points and 14 rebounds, and Kyle Lowry added 16 points and eight assists for the Raptors.

James added 10 rebounds and nine assists, just missing out on his second triple-double as a member of the Lakers.

"It's been a insane 48 hours, but it was great", Chandler said after his Lakers debut Wednesday night, as quoted by Clutch Points. After Chandler twice extended the Lakers' ensuing possession, Kuzma hit one of two free throws with 9.5 seconds left.

"It's all love, I love them the way they love me." he said.

Powered by their veteran backcourt, the Wolves got 31 points from Derrick Rose and 24 from Jimmy Butler.

The Lakers next face the Sacramento Kings on Saturday and then take on the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday. "Very, very frustrating to know we were that close, and all we have to do is rebound the basketball", Butler said.
