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

Chandler was unveiled by the Lakers on their Instagram page and he was supposedly wanted by five teams before teaming up with James.

In fact, Tyson Chandler played in clutch moments and came up big for the team in those moments with strong defense and rebounding, which is a very promising sign for the Lakers. He is eligible to be traded February 6, one day before the deadline.

It was rumored the Lakers were the favorite to sign him once the news of his departure broke.

James, however, doesn't need to play by such rules and spoke glowingly of the possible future addition of Chandler. "We are thrilled for Tyson to join us as we progress towards our ultimate goals as a team".

Josh Hart also knocked in 15 of his 21 points from three-point range and Brandon Ingram collected 20 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists for the Lakers, who picked up their third straight win for a 5-6 record.

The 36-year-old center was in the final year of his four-year, $52 million deal with Phoenix.

For his career, the 7-foot-1, 240-pound Chandler, the second overall pick in the 2001 National Basketball Association draft by the Los Angeles Clippers and traded that night along with Brian Skinner to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for Elton Brand, carries averages of 8.6 points and 9.3 rebounds in 28.2 minutes 1,086 games (875 starts).

Among them include being named NBA Champion of 2011, NBA Defensive Player of the Year for 2012 and a year later, he was included in the NBA All-Defensive First Team. The rest of their center corps - namely Ivica Zubac and rookie Jonathan Williams - haven't been able to match his impact.
