Los Angeles.- The Lakers have strengthened their indoor game Tuesday with the hiring of veteran center Tyson Chandler, which was cut a few days ago by the Phoenix Sun.
Chandler will serve as a defensive anchor for a team that disappointed at the start with a record 4-6., and which has several of the worst recordings behind the entire NBA to be the fourth table that more points match the shock (120), which allows for greater success of its opponents in the launch (45%) and the fourth that many recoveries in the attack capture it (12,7).
Angelenos's staff was missing inside men, with JaVale McGee as the only reference in the area.
"After we noticed our team the first 10 matches this season, one of the areas that Earvin (Magic Johnson, president of the Lakers) and we talked to Luke (Walton, coach) was our desire to improve our inner defense and rebound "said Rob Pelinka, general manager of purple and gold.
"At Tyson Chandler we address this need and much more. We are delighted that Tyson brings his experience as a champion to the Lakers team which will solidify the leadership of the veterans and will positively help our young core, "he added.
Chandler, aged 36, presents the career media in 8.6 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 1,086 games with jackets in Chicago, New Orleans, Charlotte, Dallas, New York and Phoenix.
