NBA Rumors: Knicks, Mavericks Nearing Trade For Tyson Chandler

Three years ago, Tyson Chandler was one of the major components of the Dallas Mavericks capturing their first NBA championship. Now Dallas may be looking to re-capture that.

According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Mavs are in serious discussions with the New York Knicks about acquiring Chandler and point guard Raymond Felton:

The Mavericks have a ton of cap room this off-season so bringing in Chandler and Felton will not kill all of it. Chandler will also come off the books after next season, so it basically serves as a one-year rental.

In return for Chandler and Felton, the Knicks would be receiving a package centered on point guard Jose Calderon, according to Stein:

Dalembert has a team option so if the Knicks were simply to waive him, the Knicks would save more than $10 million in cap space and add a point guard very suited to run the triangle offense.

The deal makes sense on both sides as the Mavericks would bring in a starting center to put behind Dirk Nowitzki, while the Knicks save money and upgrade at point guard.

With the Knicks trying to convince Carmelo Anthony to re-sign with the team, clearing up some cap room could help show him that they will be able to add some players around him.
