The first major trade of the NBA offseason may very well be nearing completion. According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Dallas Mavericks are on the verge of acquiring All-NBA defender Tyson Chandler from the New York Knicks.  ESPN has learned that Dallas Mavericks are on verge of reacquiring Tyson Chandler in trade with New York Knicks. Story going online now — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) June 25, 2014 Chandler played in Dallas for one season back in 2010-2011 before catching on with the Knicks. He is set to make over $14.5 million next season. Stein reports that this likely deal also includes Raymond Felton going to Dallas from New York in exchange for Shane Larkin, Sam Dalembert and Jose Calderón. Larkin, a first-round pick of the Mavericks last June, would be the centerpiece of the deal for a Knicks team that is looking to find any way to improve on a mediocre 2013-2014 season that saw them miss out on the playoffs in the weak Eastern Conference. This potential deal would also free up over $5 million in cap space for the Knicks, which is an indication that other parts might have to be involved.
