Chandler, 36, spent last season with the Los Angeles Lakers, where he grabbed 5.6 rebounds per game while playing 16.4 minutes per night. His best days are obviously behind him and he already has a retirement date set, but he’s the type of depth piece that could really help a contending team.
Now that Chandler has signed with the Rockets, they could turn their attention toward trying to acquire Andre Iguodala.
