View Full Version : Warriors Pursuing Tyson Chandler

Behind Dirk Nowitzki, Tyson Chandler was perhaps the most important piece to last year's title run for the Dallas Mavericks . Chandler set devastating screens and was the main force on the rebounding glass, and his defense helped clog up the paint for the Mavs. Dallas's main priority this offseason appeared to be toward resigning Chandler to make another run at a championship while all the players on the Mavs were still veterans.

Chandler returning to Dallas might not be as much a certainty as originally thought though. Chris Broussard and Marc Stein report .

In a surprise development on the first day that NBA teams and agents could start talking about new contracts, Tyson Chandler came away convinced that his time with the Dallas Mavericks is coming to an end.

"I really think I'm going to be on a new team come training camp," Chandler told ESPN.com in a telephone interview Wednesday night. "I'm really taking a hard look at all of my options, trying to see what best suits me."

Obviously, this might be posturing for Chandler to get a bigger deal from Dallas so he can be assured of finishing the rest of his prime years with Dallas and Nowitzki. It's not like Mark Cuban isn't reticent to spending for his players.

One of the teams that's pursuing Chandler the most is the Golden State Warriors (along with the New Jersey Nets, Houston Rockets and the Toronto Raptors). The Warriors definitely have size issues that give them huge issues, and it makes sense why they'd want a rebounder like Chandler.

Chandler would be a great addition. I think I'd rather have Nene, but think he might command a bit more money.

If we are going to keep Curry/Monta/Wright/Lee then Chandler is probably the best fit even though Nene is the better player.

The problem is, can we keep Lee and Chandler?

If we do, that means Biedrins is a likely amnesty candidate. But can we do that AFTER we come to terms and sign Chandler? it would be a slap in the face to do it before, and then have Chandler change his mind

We could sign and trade so Tyson Chandler gets a 5 year deal and Andris Biedrins goes to Dallas. If Dallas is going to lose Chandler, they might as well bring in a 25 year old who can block shots and defend the rim. They got something out of Erick Dampier the last time they made a deal with us.

Why wouldn't Cuban just pay the extra 4 mil for Chandler?

dumb, why the hell would Dallas take on Biendrins's contract? they could pay a few more million and keep Chandler. or they could wait for the warriors to amnesty Biedrins and get him on the cheap.

Yeah I think Tyson Chandler would be the best fit on the team. with all of the shooters on our team, theres not enough touches to give up to Nene. Chandler, plays great Defense, grabs rebounds and does not need the ball to score points.

Tyson Chandler = a WAY better version of Biedrins of 2008.

mark cuban is not going to sign and trade chandler. He isnt going to help another team get chandler. not a chance at all. and if he was willing to take on beidrins contract, he would be a complete idiot not to just resign chandler and use amnesty on brendon hayward.

BTW- brendon heyward and possibly Kamen are guys who the warriors should be watching the amnesty waiver wires for.

I dont think theres any merit to that at all. id drive the price up on the champs as well. they want to remain the champs and repeat before Dirks done.

and besides, i really hope lacob and gruber will just go into the luxury tax and create some real depth on this team. biedrins could be a pretty good backup, and he doesnt have more than 3 years left at 9 million per. thats a hefty price to pay but hopefully these guys have a plan to get into at least the playoffs much less a win or even a series win.

I'd also b fine with resigning Thornton and if possible Williams for depth. I think we can te Thornton cheap and thought he played well last year off the bench.
Now on another note if for some strange reason wee could pull off the CP3 deal with an extension also I'm fine with giving up curry

they had a big backcourt..kidd 6'4 and they started deshawn stevenson 6'7...terry was deshawn's backup and i know they ran kidd and terry a good amount of the time. but the difference is deshawn is a defensive minded starting 2. monta isnt..and he isnt 6'7.

not to say that it wouldnt work, if i had a choice id want to keep curry and monta to see what they can do..even paul and monta (which would be super small) but i dont see how it makes us better defensively. paul is definitely a defensive upgrade from curry, and yes we do need a big man like chandler who plays defense. i just dont think chandler has an offensive game. much like beans, he relies on alley oops and put backs for his points.

Aren't Paul and curry the same height? I'm not really sure that's y I ask I thought they were. But besides Paul. I don't wanna break up the back courts yet. Everyone's wants to dump Ellis for size but what frustrates me is. Urey had a bad year last year and I really hope he does way better then he did. I say keep the back courts we have. Unless we can get Paul of course. And honestly we don't need chandler to score that's what we have Ellis curry wright and lee for. That's just the starters I'm naming I know Thompson can score and will see on udoh, plus the other rookies. We have a stong defensive monded assistant coach now that will be strongly involved so we can get better. Let's add one or two solid peices great coaching and were a playoff team. Shoot look at the niners

Paul is actually 5'11..but 6'1 with shoes. Small guy but is a veteran compared to Curry. I wouldnt say Id take him over Curry, because Curry is going to explode this year and he's the future.

Whos Urey?

We dont need Chandler to score. But what if we gets injured on us?

Think about it, if Mark Jackson guaranteed the playoffs, then I'd say lets see if he's BSing. If you're buying it, then why shouldnt you buy his faith on Biedrins regaining form?

If we get Chandler, great..if not, and we dont get anybody else, you better hope Biedrins pans out like Jackson says he will..

SI is reporting that the 3 top centers are going to command a crap lost of money.

Gasol 15mil
Nene 17mil
Chandler 20mil

If that is the asking price, I don't think the warriors should go anywhere near that for chandler, 15mil at most. If that's the case the W's should go after DeAndre Jordon 9-10 mil.

Hmmm- thats odd because I think my arrangement of value to each of those players would go in the opposite order.

When you consider a players total game, his age, how he has performed throughout his carreer (not just last season). I think the best longterm investment would clearly be Gasol... followed by Nene, then Tyson Chandler.

I know its a weak free agent class, but I would value those players like this.

Gasol 13-14 million
Nene 12.5-13 million
Chandler not more than 11 million

It is a line up without a top 25 player, thus a still a mediocre lineup. If we sign Chandler to a 5 year, 55 million dollar deal we will basically be a borderline playoff team for the next five years, with no hope of ever competing for a championship. While Chandler would definitely make us better, it will only make us a .500 team, give or take.

I love watching Curry and Monta with the run and gun type offense, but its just not going to take us to the playoffs. You can't just always rely on their shots falling, their going to off on nights, its just how it is. We also have one of the smallest back courts with them. With Chandler we get a great rebounder, scorer, free throw shooter who we can rely on. I know Curry is progressing each and every week and will only get better over the next few years. But if Jackson is promising the playoffs this year, no way would he leave the roster as it is and rely on Beans bouncing back after a few years. I can see him making a bold move & signing someone big here and soon. But if he does leave the roster as it is before tip off on the 25th, it'd be obvious he was full of BS

Also, CP3 is 6'1. And I strongly disagree that "all we need is chandler" with chandler we probably be just above the .500 mark knocking on the door of post season. But with someone like Chris Paul who makes his **** team look decent, imagine what he could do with players like Mayo,Lee,Chandler alongside him. Especially with Jackson as his coach, considering he was a PG and could strongly assist him.

Id like to see what Jackson can do with Curry, seeing as he was a point guard. Curry is going to explode this year, and he's going to be in a Warriors uniform when it happens..

If anything, sign Chandler and trade for either a Rudy Gay type or Andre Iguodala. At this point Ellis is more expendable than Curry, and his trade value is very high.

Ok im getting the paul for curry deal. When you have a chance to get the best player in the league at his position... you dont worry so much about the size on your roster.

LOL- Mayo for Ellis? You might be the only person on the planet who would make that trade "in a heartbeat". I don't even think mayo's mom would make that trade in a heartbeat.

1st of all..... Ellis's numbers are better accross the board. he is an inch shorter than mayo, but mayo doesn't excel in Ellis' weaknesses. mayo isnt a great defensive player either.

2nd of all- The salaries arent even close to matching. and LOL at the idea of throwing in charlie bell as if memphis is going to want to take on more garbage. That right there showed me that you dont really understand the needs of either team.

3rd- LOL- we had people on here a few days ago saying that Rudy gay for ellis would not be a good trade for the warriors. LOl rudy gay is 5 times the player mayo is.

Trading ellis for mayo would not make any team in the league better. I even trust that mark jackson would understand that.

That's what iv been saying. He's young, athletic, defensive stud, and cheaper then other centers in free agent. But I will tell you one thing with all the centers on the market (Nene, Chandler, Gasol, Jordan) I would be disappointed if we didn't come out with a real center this year.

He certainly looks like he may be, but you also have to realize he has Blake Griffin next to him. The question is whether he will be this good playing when he is playing against a weak defender in David Lee.

He certainly looks like he may be, but you also have to realize he has Blake Griffin next to him. The question is whether he will be this good playing when he is playing against a weak defender in David Lee.

I don't see how being next to Griffin helps him defensively? Griffin isn't the greatest defender in the league either. So I think he will be just as good if he were to come to Golden State.

Marc Stein: "Warriors still chasing Tyson Chandler (best fit along w/Nene and RFA DeAndre Jordan but also in Kwame mix w/PHILLY/BOS/NYK/ORL and, yes, CHA."

I meant Rudy Gay not Mayo, kindve said that I typed his name 4 times without noticing lol

I think gay is probbly better than ellis too. I would eventually pull the trigger on that trade but its not without hesitation for me.

I like Gays game a lot but his contract is HUGE and long, also it concerns me that his team seemed to play better when he went down.

I agree, he does have a big contract.. But if Jackson wants the playoffs I think we'll see him make a big move or moving Ellis bringing in another SG that can actually complement Curry.. Otherwise I just don't see it happening

Chandler To Meet With Warriors, Rockets, Nets


Dallas Mavericks free agent Tyson Chandler will meet face-to-face this week with officials from the Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets and New Jersey Nets, according to sources close to the situation.

Negotiations with the Mavericks have stalled, prompting Chandler to tell ESPN.com on Wednesday night: "I really think I'm going to be on a new team come training camp."

With little movement in the talks in the days since, sources say that Golden State, Houston and New Jersey have emerged as the most serious suitors for Chandler, who is widely credited with changing the defensive culture in Dallas and combining with Mavs mainstay Dirk Nowitzki to spark the franchise to its first-ever championship.

Can't post the link since it's from Real GM, but the source on there was Marc Stein of ESPN.

Also, just saw this now: http://www.csnbayarea.com/blog/warriors-talk/post/Tyson-Chandler-in-Bay-Area-for-49ers-gam?blockID=605648&feedID=2539

Whats the point of over paying Chandler if we can get DJ to do the exact same thing for cheaper? DJ is coming into his own too..and he can be more productive than Chandler will be since he is on the decline..turning 30 soon.

If we can get Chandler and keep Biedrins that might be the best possible answer. Maybe Chandler would wake Biedrins up to his potential, and if Biedrins was playing the best of his career then a front line of Lee, Chandler, Udoh, and Biedrins would be fairly intimidating.

There is something in the back of my mind that thinks this will happen as well. We would then have Lee and Chandler overpaid by about 8 mil total. We are just in the unfortunate spot of HAVING to overpay players since nobody wants to come here. If everything pays off then we will start a winning tradition and players will want to come here. I think its worth the risk. If it backfires then we will be right where we started.

Tyson Chandler finds himself in the San Francisco Bay Area on Monday, the first day NBA teams are allowed to speak directly with free agent players. Chandler attended Sunday night's San Francisco 49ers game and, according to ESPN's Marc Stein , will meet with the Golden State Warriors this week.

Stein reports that Chandler, an unrestricted free agent who helped the Mavericks to the NBA championship last year, will also meet with the New Jersey Nets and Houston Rockets before the free agency period officially starts on Friday.

The Warriors would need to drop salary before fitting Chandler under the salary cap, assuming the center wants something close to market value (eight figures annually). Luckily, with the amnesty clause, Golden State can do just that. Dropping Latvian center Andris Biedrins via the amnesty clause and renouncing the rights to all of the team's free agents other than Reggie Williams would get the Warriors' salary down to $42 million, where they could easily fit Chandler and a few other small pieces.

He can be a decent rebounder and shot blocker..nothing wrong with that. But I'm not so convinced he can protect the rim.

But it could work if Jackson just asks him to focus on defense and rebounding, rather than scoring on offense. It just may work...

If Dwight Howard is a model of greatness to himself, Greg Oden is the mystery of a career lost, and Andrew Bynum is the intriguing incomplete whippersnapper, then there's a missing archetype. The hyper-competent, hyper-efficient, all-around veteran difference maker who has toughness a young guy can't have, the toughness that comes with maturity.

In the 2011 free agency, that archetype is personified by Tyson Chandler.

Tyson Chandler's story is pretty interesting. From a stone-handed bust for the Chicago Bulls to Chris Paul's alley-oop partner, Chandler was considered only valuable next to a guard like Paul as recently as 2009. He had injury issues, one of which derailed a trade to the Thunder. He wound up in Charlotte, had a forgettable year, and then made his way to Dallas. Boom.

He was the difference, in every way, for the Mavericks. For years the Mavericks were thought of as weak, as poor defensively, as lacking resolve, as lacking toughness around the rim. Chandler changed all of that. He attacks relentlessly and has the veteran sense to understand spacing to float and recover. If you want numbers, he allows just a 39 percent field goal percentage against the pick-and-roll according to Synergy Sports. He blocked 3 percent of all shots last year, including 19 blocks in 21 playoff games.

But it was more than just numbers. It was his approach. Not overly emotional, not tempermental, not prone to impulse. Making the right play, making it strong, and finishing alley-oop after alley-oop. 62 of Chandler's 266 makes last season were on pick-and-roll scoring opportunities and most of those were alley-oops. He and J.J. Barea had a very unique set of chemistry.

Chandler is a pro's pro at this point in his career, and in a league in desperate need of quality starting centers, he does all the things you look for a big man to do. Which is why he's got so many suitors. Reports over the weekend indicated that Chandler's biggest options were Houston, New Jersey (who want to sign every single free agent on the market), and the Golden State Warriors.

That's right, it's a new day in the Bay (so why don't you call it a day and eat some hay, what do ya' say, I just may) and Mark Jackson has vowed to turn the Warriors into a defensive-minded team. When new ownership and management came out alongside Jackson and said that they would be focusing on getting big men, it seemeed laughable. But now the Warriors are in a position to move from their constant rebuilding status of the past few years into at least "acceptably decent" territory. Chandler puts them lightyears ahead.

With a defensive minded coach, if Jackson can reach them, the Warriors have a dynamic point guard who can shoot from anywhere in Stephen Curry, a prolific scorer in Monta Ellis, a low-post scorer and volume rebounder in David Lee, a plethora of talented wings, a young raw big man in Ekpe Udoh who showed flashes last year, and a championship big man in Tyson Chandler. Having that kind of defense at the rim shifts the entire function of the team. If you don't believe a system and capable bigs can help a team with poor defensive talent, I direct you to the fact the Chicago Bulls had one of the best defenses in the league last season and started Carlos Boozer while bringing Kyle Korver off the bench.

Chandler is likely going to draw a King' ransom based on his reputation, the weakness of this free agency class, the weakness of this league at the center position, and the teams currently in the market. Golden State is a big-market team looking to put itself on the map with new owners, a new coach, and players they can trade, most notably Ellis, who has been on the block for what feels like a decade.

Chandler is 29, if he's given a near-max extension or, even worse, a max, he'll be 32 when the deal expires. That's a quality length of time. Golden State has tried going young and athletic, now it wants to get serious.

It doesn't get much more serious than Tyson Chandler.

The Warriors could be in position to make a serious move in 2011-2012.

if curry truy is safe, then I dont see a paul trade happening. Curry and paul in the back court doesnt make a lot of sense, and New orleans is not interested in Ellis.

Granted how much does it mean that they said Curry is safe. I mean maybe that was damage control for a deal that may or may not fall through. It was less than a week ago when larry riley was talking about entering training camp with no significant moves on the roster. Thismorning larry riley was on with mac and murph and he sounded acrtually pretty confident on the tyson chandler front.

He kind of shyed away from trades and amnesty canidates per team policy. BUt I heard a new side of riley.....it sounded like a gm who wanted to make some things happen and not just "look at different scenerios and be active on the phone lines"

Yeah I heard that interview too. I think we'll get Chandler but when you really think about this Paul trade there are sooooo many reasons to not make the move if Curry is involved. Can you imagine losing all of our youth, Paul leaving, and not be able to rebuild correctly since Lee, Chandler, and Monta are all overpaid and hard to trade? Still, I would make the trade just to go for it, but I would probably be relieved if we didn't.

Still, I would make the trade just to go for it, but I would probably be relieved if we didn't.

I make the trade.... knowing that is a possability for a few reasons.

1)If I am new ownership, I will do ANYTHING to prove this is not another Cohan era.

2) Getting a player as special as chris Paul before he hits his prime is such a rare opportunity.... its hard to pass up on it, especially when you are passing up on it in order to keep a 36 win team intact. It isnt like you are ripping a dynasty apart.... or even a contending team. (BTW- there are many contending teams willing to give key pieces to get in the hunt for chris paul, he really is THAT SPECIAL)

3) This is the one that isnt getting any attention. If we were able to land chris paul and tyson chandler in the same off season, we would be taking a risk (which has been mentioned obviously). Doing that would truly change the culture of the team though. The front office would be putting every free agent in the league for the next few years on notice that golden state is a team that really wants to go somewhere and they are trying to make it happen all the time. They arent sitting there waiting for average players to develop, and hoping they get great draft picks while their current players are sitting there wasting their carreers essentially tanking season after season. Thats the type of team that gets impact players with the midlevel, and finds ways to bring solid rotation players in for the vets minimum..... If they have a chance at a guy like paul and they pass on it to keep a 36 win team intact.... it kinda says the exact opposite to the rest of the league.

Am I the only one that thinks $15M a year is a tad too much for Tyson Chandler? Especially if he doesn't lure Paul here. Unless the Warriors are willing to part with Curry, then I don't see Chris Paul in a Warriors uniform.

We need him though.

29 mil/year for Lee and Chandler is hard to fathom for sure.
