Could Tyson Chandler return to the Big Apple? After injuries to rookie Obi Toppin, Omari Spellman and Nerlens Noel, the Knicks, according to Marc Berman of the New York Post, are looking to deepen their forecourt and have had “internal conversations” about the prospect of bringing Chandler back to Madison Square

The team also reportedly have their eye on veteran big man Taj Gibson, who played for the Knicks in 2019-20

Gibson, 34, played for Tom Thibodeau for the Chicago Bulls and Minnesota Timberwolves, which is why it took some people by surprise when the Knicks turned down his $ 10 million option for this season, Gibson has reportedly for seven in the past few weeks different teams worked

A season after Chandler helped lead the Dallas Mavericks to an NBA championship in 2011, he was sold to the Knicks just before the 2011-12 season and immediately became a key piece alongside Carmelo Anthony and Amars Stoudemire and was an essential defensive tooth in several playoff teams

Tyson Chandler made his only All-Star appearance at the Knicks in 2011/12 and also won the NBA Defensive Player of the Year that season

For three seasons in NYC, Chandler averaged 102 points, 101 rebounds, and 17 blocks per game, while shooting 638% from the field

The 38-year-old center played in 2019-20, his 19th NBA season for the Houston Rockets Chandler appeared in 26 games for Houston

Despite the injuries, the Knicks (5-3) got what is perhaps the most surprising start of any team in the NBA, as Thibodeau is already playing his group harder and smarter than last season

After their comeback win against Utah Jazz on Wednesday, the Knicks have won five out of six games, including several wins for the Eastern Conference playoff teams.
