Did ex-teammate do LeBron a favor by waiving Tyson Chandler?

Latest Laker Tyson Chandler

The Los Angeles Lakers have signed center Tyson Chandler, it was announced today by General Manager Rob Pelinka.

The Los Angeles Lakers needed some defensive help this season. We are excited that Tyson will bring championship-level experience to our Lakers team that will solidify our veteran leadership and help positively shape our young core.

Timberwolves guard Jimmy Butler will play on Wednesday against the Lakers, coach Tom Thibodeau said after shootaround.

A stretch of seven games saw the Lakers not once win the battle of the boards as opposing teams feasted on the glass. He is the latest addition to a core of veteran Lakers newcomers around James including Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, McGee and Michael Beasley, who returned to practice Tuesday after spending a week away due to an undisclosed personal matter.
