Chandler, who has spent last season with the Dallas Mavericks, will add some much-needed experience to a young up-and-upcoming Suns team, which boasts a number of talented players, including Brandon Knight and Eric Bledsoe.
The Mavericks had been hoping to re-sign Chandler after he averaged 10.3 points, 11.5 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.2 blocks per game last season. But, they received stiff competition from the Suns and Los Angeles Clippers, who were looking to sign Chandler as a cover for center DeAndre Jordan after he opted to become a free agent.
In addition to Chandler, the Suns have also agreed to re-sign Knight on a five-year, 70 million dollar deal. But, both Chandler and Knight will have to wait until July 9 to sign their contracts as that is when a leaguewide moratorium on roster business will be lifted.
