Mavericks plan to try and re-acquire Tyson Chandler from Knicks this summer

Sam Spiegelman

To Mark Cuban, Tyson Chandler was the one that got away.

With that being said, Cuban aims to make amends for his mistake and will try to re-acquire Chandler from the Knicks this summer, according to ESPN.

Tyson Chandler, Beno Udrih, Luc Mbah a MouteVia insider Marc Stein:

The most interesting whisper, at this early stage, is that the Mavs intend to be at the front of the line to try to reacquire Tyson Chandler should the Knicks make their defensive anchor available via trade.

Letting Chandler go remains the most fiercely debated aspect of Cuban’s decision to break up the Mavs’ championship team, but word is they’ll indeed pursue what many will regard as an overdue reunion.

It is unknown whether Phil Jackson will make Chandler available this summer. He has another year remaining on his current deal, but said during the regular season he does not want to be a part of another rebuilding project.

“I definitely don’t want to waste another season,’’ Chandler told the NY Post. “I don’t want to waste this season. “I’m not into wasting seasons. Your time is too short in this league and I want to win a championship, another one. I’m not into wasting seasons.’’

Perhaps Chandler will change his tune if Carmelo Anthony opts to stay in New York. Or perhaps he’ll make a plea to Jackson to send him back to Dallas if ‘Melo walks and the team does undergo a roster overhaul.

I would do a Chandler for Ellis trade,he's the only guy I would want because they have no number one.The Sun's 14th pick is very attrractive for Chandler too.

By some measures Chandler was our best player every year he's been here.

What measures?  Those that include defense, like adjusted +/-.

Those that don't see his value probably only watch our team on offense.

Brandan Wright....Dalembert, Larkin and Ricky Ledo for Chandler would do the trick for me. Wright and Dalemberts contracts expire after next season so you wouldn't be taking much risk.

Dallas is way under the cap.....they can take his salary off our hands......maybe we can get a 1st round pick from them....love for them to take JR but that could be asking too much....Felton may end up in jail if he is found guilty of one of the gun charges....so his contract would be voided...

FOH, the knicks are keeping Tyson.

The salaries do not have to match.  The Mavs are over 28M under the cap.  The best thing the Knicks can do in a deal with Dallas is try and get Larkin and/or a 1st round pick and a Trade Exception.  Personally Id probably try and structure it this way:

Chandler 14.5M

Felton 4M


for 

Dallas 1st round pick

Shane Larkin 2014 $1,606,080 2015 (team option) $1,675,320 2016 (Team option) $2,576,642 $3,656,255

17M TPE.

They can have him. Alls he does is shoot his mouth off,gets injured. And when he plays he can't shoot to save his life,he's a good pick n role center but he's so overrated and so is his defense. At least for they money he's gotten. Pretty bold words for him to say he wants to play for a winner,and he's not going to waste another year. When the Knicks overpaid for a guy who was part of the problem. And last years playoffs he got owned by hibbert. HE SUCKS!

Breaking news :Sources are saying there's a hole in MSG as a result of Tyson Chandlers value going threw the roof.

Yes please.  I wanted him gone before the deadline in Feb.  His value has only dropped since then.  He was exposed late last season and against Indy; dump him.

Let's get 2 1st rd picks & a player.

Let Cuban have him, and let Melo go, too, for that matter.  Let's rebuild the right way this time -- from nothing.  Let's stop trying to fit square pegs in round holes.  Get a few 1st round picks, maybe Devin Harris (or, even better, Monta), and perhaps get someone to take Felton off our hands (addition by subtraction).

Cuban will have lots of cap space to sign free agents. He could make an offer to Melo when he opts out. As far as Tyson, I have no idea on how he gets to Dallas, unless he agrees to rework his contract.

@Mel Brown  We talking the same language. It's all good what cuban wants and we may be willing to trade but WTF does cuban have??? Now we will see what phil jackson has in mind!!!!!!!!!
