  • Lakers make signing of veteran center Chandler official

The Lakers are 5-6 on the season.

The 36-year-old centre played 23 minutes on his debut on Wednesday, a day after the Lakers signed him, but looked completely at home in a 114-110 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Los Angeles Lakers got an immediate boost from their newest addition in their win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night, and many people believe LeBron James should be thanking one of his former teammates for that.

Nearly three weeks ago, Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul got into each other's face following Brandon Ingram's temper tantrum about being called for a foul.

Powered by their veteran backcourt, the Timberwolves got 31 points from Derrick Rose and 24 from Jimmy Butler.

Tyson Chandler feels he can free up LeBron James to do "special things" and relishes the opportunity to be a hero rather than a villain at Staples Center after joining the Lakers.


Despite Bayless' comments, James has averaged more points this season (26.5 to 24.1), but is down on assists (7.8 to 8.9) and rebounds (7.9 to 8.3).

As expected, the Los Angeles Lakers have signed veteran center Tyson Chandler, the team announced in a new release. He said he was unsure of Ball's status for the team's game against the Kings.

"Hopefully it's nothing serious", said Luke Walton. "I'd like to say it is going to be better the next game". To have him close out games, I know how special he is on both ends.

Jones played with James in Miami, and followed him to the Cleveland Cavaliers late in his career.

In two of his last three games, Lonzo Ball has scored 12 points, shooting 66 percent against Dallas and 71 percent against Toronto. "It's unbelievable. I haven't played with a closer like that since Dirk".

The Lakers have had a fluctuating start to the season, winning five and losing six.
