NBA Rumors: Knicks, Mavericks Nearing Trade For Tyson Chandler
[new_royalslider id=”287″]

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.
