The Los Angeles Lakers got an immediate boost from their newest addition in their win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night, and many people believe LeBron James should be thanking one of his former teammates for that. They have struggled to contain teams, especially when they are outnumbered in terms of size on the court.
Chandler became a free agent after receiving a buyout from the Phoenix Suns and was free to sign with any team after clearing waivers.
While the 36-year-old Chandler might not be the dominant defensive player he was in his prime, he could play regular minutes for coach Luke Walton while the Lakers attempt to find a winning groove in their first season with LeBron James. But his team found the stops necessary down the stretch and managed to pull off a fighting win. And Chandler didn't disappoint, hauling in nine rebounds. "I'd like to say it is going to be better the next game".
The Los Angeles Lakers announced on Tuesday that they have signed center Tyson Chandler from the Phoenix Suns.
LeBron even called Jones his "favorite player of all time" at one point and said when he owned an National Basketball Association team in the future, he'd save a spot for him in the front office.
White House revokes CNN reporter's credentials after furious exchange with Trump
In a tweet Mr Acosta says he was stopped by the Secret Service when he tried to re-enter the White House on Wednesday evening. A White House aide tried to grab the microphone off the journalist, who Trump also called an enemy of the people.
"He'll be an important role player for the team and a much more imposing presence around the rim than the other guys playing behind McGee-the Lakers at one point turned to 6′ 9" rookie Johnathan Williams to fill in the gap, and he was just okay. "And get a dub". To have him close out games, I know how special he is on both ends.
"I told him he needs an opt-out clause wherever he's at", James said with a smile.
Thibodeau said Butler, who has requested a trade, is still trying to get in game shape.
The Lakers next face the Sacramento Kings on Saturday and then take on the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday.
