Knicks Agree to Send Center Tyson Chandler to the Mavericks

Knicks Agree to Send Center Tyson Chandler to the Mavericks

NBA via New York Knicks(NEW YORK) — Tyson Chandler is heading back to the Mavericks as the New York Knicks and Dallas have agreed on a six-player trade with Chandler as the center piece.

The trade would sent Chandler and point guard Raymond Felton to the Mavericks in exchange for point guards Jose Calderon and Shane Larkin along with guard Wayne Ellington, center Samuel Dalembert, and two second-round picks in Thursday night’s draft.

Chandler played for the Mavericks during the 2010-2011 season — the season they won their one and only NBA Championship.

“The journey to build this team for the upcoming season and beyond continues,” Knicks executive Phil Jackson said in the announcement. “We have added players with this move that will fit right in to our system while maintaining future flexibility.”

This move will help Dallas pursue top free agents such as Carmelo Anthony and Lebron James.

For the Knicks, it provides future flexibility, young players, and draft picks, which is something the Knicks haven’t had much of in recent years.
