Chandler Says LeBron 'Greatest Nearer Since Nowitzki' After Lakers Beat Timberwolves

  • Former Sun Tyson Chandler officially signs with Lakers

LeBron James and James Jones share a deep-rooted friendship dating all the way back to their days with the Miami Heat, then the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The 36-year-old center was in the final year of his four-year, $52 million deal with Phoenix.

An All-Star in the 2012-13 season, the well-traveled Chandler has also played with the Bulls, the Oklahoma City Thunder, the New Orleans Hornets, the Charlotte Bobcats, the Dallas Mavericks (twice) and the New York Knicks before landing in Phoenix for the 2015-16 season.

In a video to Lakers fans, Chandler expressed his excitement to play for L.A.

James added 10 rebounds and nine assists, just missing out on his second triple-double as a member of the Lakers. The veteran big man grabbed nine rebounds in 23 minutes and helped LA retain possession and hold a one-point lead when he tipped the ball out to his teammates after a missed shot with seconds remaining.

Magic Johnson has said that Walton's job is safe for now and that he'll finish out the year as head coach (granted nothing "drastic" happens, whatever that may mean), but the addition of Chandler certainly helps his chances of having more than just this year to work for the organization. Josh Hart provides a spark off the bench with 21 points while Kyle Kuzma adds 21 points of his own. And until Wednesday night, he had played 1,086 career games - but zero with his hometown Lakers.

One thing that isn't open for debate - the Lakers needed Chandler on Wednesday night.

"It's all love, I love them the way they love me." he said.

Powered by their veteran backcourt, the Timberwolves got 31 points from Derrick Rose and 24 from Jimmy Butler. His availability for Saturday's game against the Sacramento Kings is now unclear. "We got him out at the end of practice and he went in for treatment", Walton said.
