Tyson Chandler is all too familiar with the city of Dallas so when Phil traded him back, Im sure there wasn’t too many tears. Since he’s not new to the area, Tyson feels like he can be a great help to the Mavericks organization in helping his former teammate Carmelo Anthony, in choosing Dallas as his new home.
“Absolutely, I’m going to do whatever I can to help the team and the organization,” Chandler told reporters on a conference call a day after Phil Jackson dealt him to the Mavs. “At the end of the day, free agency is kind of an individual thing. And I know that I was once there and it comes down to your family and what’s best for you career-wise.
“But I’ll tell you one thing: Dallas isn’t a bad place to be. It’s a great opportunity, and clearly we’ve done it in the past. It’s not a hard place to sell. I’m going to do whatever it takes.”
The Mavs are said to be on the list of Anthony’s possible landing spots. How do you guys feel about Carmelo Anthony in Dallas alongside Dirk?
