NBA Rumors: Tyson Chandler hints he wants out with New York Knicks


The New York Knicks season is just about over as they will not be playing in the postseason this year and will instead be sulking into an offseason which is sure to feature plenty of change. With Phis Jackson in town, the team is looking to improve over the summer in order to return to glory next year but n to everyone is willing to come back and give it another whirl in New York.

According to New York Post beat writer Marc Berman, center Tyson Chandler sounded hesitant to commit to the Knicks in 2014-15 despite the arrival of Phil Jackson and the hope that brings. To put it simply, Chandler doesn’t trust the Knicks will be any good next season and doesn’t want to waste his time.

Per Marc Berman:

“I definitely don’t want to waste another season,’’ Chandler said before the Knicks faced the Nets Tuesday at Barclays Center. “I don’t want to waste this season. I’m not into wasting seasons. Your time is too short in this league and I want to win a championship, another one. I’m not into wasting seasons.’’

That’s not a request tone released but there will be questions about what to do with a lot of veteran contracts this offseason and Chnadler’s is near the top of the list. He very well could buy in but it’s clear that the Knicks hiring Jackson didn’t win over all of their players without further moves needing to be made.
