Multiple league executives say the Knicks are now in the lead to land Tyson Chandler, jumping in front of the Warriors.
If the deal goes through, the Knicks use amnesty on Chauncey Billups and move Ronny Turiaf to make room for Chandler, sources say.

Wait seriously, WTF... I like Chandler but if it's for a deal similar to what GSW is offering, no thank you.
That being said, he is literally the perfect fit at center (outside of Dwight). But that leaves a huge whole at PG (maybe thinking Nash in 2012?). I guess they heard that Paul won't accept less money as a FA.
Lookin like a major twist, how u?

I'm really scared about this. Like I said, I like Chandler as a player and he's a great fit... BUT, he could end up being a horrible contract and we'd be without a PG. I'm also terrified of LA or Miami picking up Billups, he'd make them amazing.
Then again, the way he turned around Dallas' defense was huge and if he could bring that to NY, it'd be huge.
