Tyson Chandler was a big reason why the Dallas Mavericks won their first NBA championship last season. On the first day that agents were allowed to talk to teams, Chandler apparently didn’t like what the Mavs had to say.
Said Chandler to ESPN: “I really think I’m going to be on a new team come training camp. I’m really taking a hard look at all of my options, trying to see what best suits me.”
If the Mavs actually do lose Chandler, that would be devastating to their hopes of repeating. Chandler is undoubtedly the best defender on the team. Without him, the Mavs wouldn’t be nearly as difficult to score on.
Then again, Chandler could just be upping the pressure on the Mavs to offer more money. Do we really think Mark Cuban is going to lose a bidding war over a player who brought him a championship? I highly doubt it.

The 4th item on the list (in ascending order) asked about...
Tyson Chandler had a pretty good season with the Dallas Mavericks. Beyond his numbers (above his career averages in most major categories), he had an intangible impact on the Mavs that caused Rick Carlisle to say
“I don’t need to overstate his importance. We’ll do everything possible to [re-sign him]. Tyson Chandler changed our season on a lot of levels. It wasn’t just...

From Tyson Chandler’s point of view, he will not get a chance to help the Dallas Mavericks defend their NBA championship.
The free agent center is convinced he’ll be playing for an other team by the time the season kicks off.
Chandler doesn’t foresee a long-term deal of his liking coming from Mark Cuban, and expects to sign with another squad...
Jason Terry wants the Mavericks to bring back Tyson Chandler.
If free agency indeed starts Dec. 9, the Pistons soon can try to address their seemingly perpetual need for size. There are top-tier post players available in the Mavericks' Tyson Chandler (a previous Pistons target) and the Nuggets' Nene, though it's unlikely the Pistons will be able to afford them.
