This season has been a brutal one for the New York Knicks and it’s starting to take a toll on the players who are stuck in the losing funk. While all of the attention right now is being paid to Carmelo Anthony and where his future will take him, another Knicks star is having doubts about his future with the team.
According to Marc Berman from the New York Post, Tyson Chandler is disillusioned in New York and is questioning whether or not he wants to continue playing for the organization. He’s not demanding a release now, but Berman reports that Chandler isn’t sure he wants to re-sign in the offseason.
With the Knicks in chaos, owner James Dolan is going to look to rebuild or reload at season’s end. Whether Chandler, who is starting to show signs of age, is part of the blueprints is unclear. And Chandler may not want to stick around either.
“That’s something I have to visit during the offseason,’’ Chandler said. “We’re all going to have a lot of decisions to make.”
Chandler isn’t the focus of the Knicks future, as all eyes are on Melo for that. But if Chandler is upset, that has to have a trickle effect to Melo and New York shouldn’t take the disgruntled grumblings of it’s veteran locker room leader lightly.
