Golden State Warriors ‘Aggressively’ Pursuing Tyson Chandler

by December 06, 2011

Stephen Curry is but one member of the Warriors who’d be thrilled if Tyson Chandler moved to the Bay Area. From the San Fran Chronicle: “Don’t laugh. The Warriors could find a way to sign prized free-agent center Tyson Chandler. It would take some major roster finagling, but the Warriors’ front office is aggressively studying all of the requisite moves to make the signing a possibility. Also, the team’s best players seem to be in support of the bold changes that could open salary space for Chandler. ‘It’d be huge,’ said point guard Stephen Curry, who spent six weeks with Chandler on the USA Basketball team last summer. ‘He’s a game-changer down low. That’s a coveted role that a lot of teams want to add to their roster. If he’s a guy who puts a Warriors’ jersey on, it’d be a huge addition.’ The NBA allowed teams to contact free agents Monday, and the Warriors’ brass set up a face-to-face meeting with the 7-foot-1 center and his agent, Jeff Schwartz.”
