Knicks could revive Tyson Chandler?
The New York Knicks may be attempting to reunite with a focal point of their last team to make the playoffs.
Marc Berman of the New york city Post reported on Thursday that the Knicks have actually had internal discussions about bringing back veteran center Tyson Chandler. The former Defensive Gamer of the Year played for the group for 3 seasons from 2011 to 2014. Present Knicks assistant Mike Woodson was also Chandler’s head coach then.
The Knicks are also supposedly planning to restore big guy Taj Gibson, who played for the group last season and has a long history with head coach Tom Thibodeau. Omari Spellman would be waived though to include Gibson, which seems to suggest that Chandler could still be a possibility.
Chandler is now 38, so he would likely play more of a sensei role for the Knicks instead of factoring into the actual rotation. But the group has some young bigs (e.g. Mitchell Robinson, Obi Toppin, and so on) who could use some polishing. Still, signing another frontcourt piece might play into a popular running gag about the Knicks recently.
