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

The Los Angeles Lakers announced on Tuesday that they have signed center Tyson Chandler from the Phoenix Suns.

Tyson Chandler made his Lakers debut in the first quarter and scored his first basket with his new team when he tipped in a Rajon Rondo miss with 5:11 remaining in the second quarter.

Typically, the National Basketball Association buyout market doesn't heat up until the February trade deadline. Chandler agreed to shave $2.1 million off his $13.6 million salary with Phoenix.

There's one working theory of why the Suns granted Chandler the buyout now instead of in February or March when the traditional wave of buyouts occur: Phoenix interim GM James Jones was a longtime teammate of LeBron's in Miami and Cleveland.

And that was the plan...until LeBron called in a favor.

Chandler, 36, had nine rebounds and made clutch defensive plays in 23 minutes of action, helping the Lakers hold off Minnesota 114-110.

"They could have bought him out at the trade deadline and gotten great leadership and mentoring for two-thirds of the season", a rival executive told B/R. Everybody's looking at them saying, 'Hey, you've gotta win over 50 games this year, ' all this pressure from LeBron-just from playing with him. LeBron James could also shoulder a larger playmaking load.

The theory was backed up by Bleacher Report, who said the timing of Chandler's buyout was not coincidental.

"He deserves all the credit", he told ESPN of Jones. "He was very instrumental".

Struggles to deploy a functional, organised team resulted in Lakers president Magic Johnson threatening Walton with the sack.

Can Tyson Chandler Save Luke Walton?

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. Thus, creating a center presence the Lakers haven't had in a while.
