Free-agent center Tyson Chandler has agreed to a one-year deal with the Houston Rockets, agent Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports Management tells ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Chandler, 36, spent most of last season with the Los Angeles Lakers, where he averaged 5.6 rebounds and 3.1 points in 16.4 minutes per game.
A 17-year veteran, Chandler was an effective defender and rebounder last season and has a reputation as a great locker room guy.
It will be Chandler’s second time around with Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni. Chandler was with the Knicks in 2011-12, when D’Antoni was coaching for New York.
