It's a bold move for the Lakers who needed the added depth at the center position alongside JaVale McGee.

A moment of silence is observed in honor of Philip "Flip" Saunders' passing before the game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Minnesota Timberwolves at Staples Center on October 28, 2015 in Los Angeles, California.

According to ESPN, Chandler has negotiated a buyout from Phoenix to move to the Lakers which, as reported by the New York Times' Marc Stein, is where he will go. Los Angeles will mark the 36-year-old's seventh franchise after spending the past four seasons in Phoenix.

Chandler is a native of Los Angeles, and he has been anxious to find a new home amid the Suns' rebuild.

Safety experts caution, however, that the data must be checked for accuracy against the flight data recorder. Sirait did not elaborate on the issue and said he had no plans to ground the rest of Lion Air's Max 8 fleet.

The prorated minimum for Chandler once he clears waivers will be $2.1 million.

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). Wojnarowski noted that the Suns and Chandler have had a mutual agreement on a buyout for "some time". The Lakers rank No. 21 in the league in defensive efficiency. "We have to be even greater, but it's definitely good to have him on the floor, I'll tell you that", James said on Saturday.

In seven games with the Suns this season, Chandler is only 12.7 minutes and putting up 3.7 points and 5.6 boards.

The Lakers will once again have to bring someone new into the fold, but a veteran like Chandler is a definite upgrade to a back-up center position that was now being filled in by two-way contract Johnathan Williams.
