Chandler Expects to leave The Mavs
 
http://espn.go.com/dallas/nba/story/...-training-camp
In a surprise development on the first day that NBA teams and agents could start talking about new contracts, Tyson Chandler came away convinced that his time with the Dallas Mavericks is coming to an end.

"I really think I'm going to be on a new team come training camp," Chandler told ESPN.com in a telephone interview Wednesday night. "I'm really taking a hard look at all of my options, trying to see what best suits me."


Chandler
"Chandler's doubts about the Mavericks' willingness to re-sign him to a lucrative long-term deal will be welcome news for organizations throughout the league. Chandler and Denver center Nene rank as the two most coveted unrestricted free agents in the 2011 class, but the overwhelming sentiment in many front offices has been that Chandler's return to Dallas was essentially a done deal after the 7-footer's role in helping the Mavericks win their first championship.

Chandler, though, insisted Wednesday that such assumptions are a misnomer and admitted for the first time that he's disappointed by the club's decision not to offer him a contract extension after he was widely credited -- most notably by Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki -- for changing the team's defensive culture after three first-round exits in the previous four years.

Chandler maintains that staying in Dallas has been his first choice, but he expressed disappointment that the communication between the sides was minimal from the end of the NBA Finals in mid-June and the June 30 deadline for extensions. NBA front office sources list New Jersey, Golden State, Houston and Toronto as the teams chasing Chandler hardest."

"Tyson Chandler, the free agent center who helped Dallas win the NBA title last spring, is "interested’’ in the Nets, according to someone familiar with his thinking. The person did not wish to be identified because he is not authorized to speak for Chandler." Newark Star-Ledger

Chandler is just interested in cashing in. Who can blame him? Dude single-handledly did away with the "soft" title the Mavs had.

He deserves it. If Dallas won't tie the money into Chandler, they are gonna lose him.

So is business.

Why would he leave, he was talking about before the year in Dallas how he always wanted to play for the Mavs.

I see the Rockets, Nets, and Celtics making nice bid for him.

If Chandler leaves Mavs will go into rebuild mode.

Golden State would be great with Chandler and Rudy Gay (if they end up doing that deal).

Stephen Curry
Klay Thompson
Rudy Gay
David Lee
Tyson Chandler.

That could be a really, really interesting team,

TC is a hard guy to gauge. There are years when he looks like the second coming of Bill Russell (early NO years), then suddenly becomes little more than Kwame Brown with better hands. It's risky to pay him big bucks since you never know what TC you'll be getting.
