Tyson Chandler On the Market?

According to an ESPN report, Tyson Chandler is expecting to be on a new team this season.

 "I really think I'm going to be on a new team come training camp," Chandler told 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."

This comes as shocking news as Chandler played an integral role in the Mavericks' championship run. It was practically assumed that he would be resigned, but he apparently thinks differently.

Tyson would be a great addition to the Knicks, however it's highly unlikely that they'll make a move. The Knicks are not looking to add any long term salary to the team this year, in hopes of having cap space to sign Chris Paul (mainyl), Dwight Howard, or Deron Williams.

In the meantime, Chandler will probably be pursued by teams looking to contend this year by adding a great starting center, like the Miami Heat. He also may be pursued by teams looking to solidfy their lineup. Perhaps the Indiana Pacers will look into Chandler. There have also been rumors that the New Jersey Nets will look to acquire one Nene or Marc Gasol to use as trade chips for Dwight Howard. Chandler may be added to that mix.
