Lakers sign Tyson Chandler after buyout from Suns

Lakers sign Chandler to fill need at center

On Wednesday, it was 47-40 to Los Angeles. The ship had long since sailed on the idea that Chandler would be a part of any sort of championship pursuit in Phoenix, but at least he could serve as a role model and mentor to No. 1 overall pick Deandre Ayton.

The veteran center signed with Los angeles this week after clearing waivers on a contract buyout with the Suns.

This is an intriguing theory as James and Jones both have developed a close relationship over the years after spending much time together as players with the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers.

He spent the past three seasons with Phoenix, and he averaged 6.5 points and 9.1 rebounds per game previous year.

However, Chandler comes to a team that gives up the most points in the paint in the NBA, according to NBA.com. Josh Hart provides a spark off the bench with 21 points while Kyle Kuzma adds 21 points of his own.

Philippine court finds Imelda Marcos guilty of graft
The court has previously undone at least one case against Imelda, overturning a 24 year jail sentence in 1993 on graft charges. Fredenil Castro said that despite her conviction, Marcos will remain a member of the House of Representatives.

"He's good ... we had a nice talk today", said the coach. "We played bad, eight games". That came after Butler missed two of the previous three games for "precautionary rest" and "general soreness".

For his career, the 7-foot-1, 240-pound Chandler, the second overall pick in the 2001 National Basketball Association draft by the Los Angeles Clippers and traded that night along with Brian Skinner to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for Elton Brand, carries averages of 8.6 points and 9.3 rebounds in 28.2 minutes 1,086 games (875 starts). Thus, creating a center presence the Lakers haven't had in a while.

"This team will be at its best when LeBron James dribbles the ball up the floor and initiates the offence", Bayless said. His field goal percentage on the year is 46 percent.

Ball has shown what he can do passing the ball, but making an impression on the game through his shooting would make him more of an offensive threat.
