Chandler Says LeBron 'Greatest Nearer Since Nowitzki' After Lakers Beat Timberwolves

Tyson Chandler officially signed with the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday after clearing waivers. More

LeBron James #23 of the Los Angeles Lakers walks on the court during a stop in play in a preseason game against the Golden State Warriors at T-Mobile Arena on October 10, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Toronto Raptors continued their impressive run this season with a 114-105 win over the Sacramento Kings.

LeBron James was again the leading scorer for the Lakers and came close to recording his second triple-double with his new franchise.

Veteran center Tyson Chandler signed with the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday, two days after reaching a buyout agreement with the Phoenix Suns.

Chandler finished with nine rebounds in 23 minutes in the Lakers' 114-110 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday. Jimmy Butler adds 24 points in the loss.

While the 36-year-old Chandler might not be the dominant defensive player he was in his prime, he could play regular minutes for coach Luke Walton while the Lakers attempt to find a winning groove in their first season with LeBron James. "It was great to get the first win out the way, be out there, be a part [of the team], playing competitive basketball, and like you said, being able to help the team out I've watched my whole life".

The Lakers' defense is 18.3 points per 100 possessions worse when McGee is off the floor, meaning Chandler's role, as well as his skillset, could prove to be a good fit with Los Angeles. "And get a dub". Tyson Chandler also made his Lakers debut and was a huge presence, but we will get to that later.

"The more pressure I can take off him, it will free him up to do all the special things he has been doing his entire career".

"I've been on the other side and played the villain, " he added.

"It's been a insane 48 hours", Chandler said after the game. How much can he help his Lakers as the season rolls on?
