Report: Tyson Chandler to New York Knicks
Howard Beck of the New York Times tweeted: "Tyson Chandler deal will be done today, w/Billups amnestied, according to source. Not clear where Turiaf going yet, but he'll be traded."
Chandler is asking for a four-year, $58-million contract, according to the newspaper. In order to land the 7-foot-1 defensive specialist, the Knicks would have to create salary-cap room by unloading guard Chauncey Billups and forward Ronny Turiaff, who last season averaged 17.5 points and 4.2 points, respectively.
Chandler helped the Mavericks win their first championship in franchise history last season, while averaging nearly a double-double with 10.1 points and 9.4 rebounds a game.
