Former Sun Tyson Chandler officially signs with Lakers

"We felt a year ago when (Lonzo) got hurt, we were searching for that guy, we finally put Brandon at point guard and that kind of helped us get going again", said Walton.

Although he scored only two points, it was his nine rebounds that mattered, including two crucial offensive rebounds in the final 42 seconds.

Center Tyson Chandler has signed with the Los Angeles Lakers after clearing waivers on a contract buyout with the Phoenix Suns, general manager Rob Pelinka announced Monday.

James, Kuzma and Josh Hart played major roles in the Lakers' third win in four games, but they all directed praise toward Chandler, who joined the Lakers on Tuesday after reaching a buyout agreement with Phoenix.

"It's all love, I love them the way they love me." he said.

While other key players Pascal Siakam had 21 points, Kyle Lowry 16 points and Serge Ibaka 14 points. "Now it's great to be on this side and actually rep 'em".

"You can tell he's a young-old guy that's happy to be back home, and he played with a lot of energy tonight", said Rajon Rondo, who was thanked by Chandler for vocally directing him around the court.

James led the Lakers with 24 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.

The second-year point guard is coming off one of his better defensive efforts this season, which Ball explained was a point of emphasis after the Lakers got off to a poor start against the Toronto Raptors.

"It's been a insane 48 hours, but it was great", Chandler said after his Lakers debut Wednesday night, as quoted by Clutch Points.

"I think it helps stabilize us", Walton said.

Powered by their veteran backcourt, the Timberwolves got 31 points from Derrick Rose and 24 from Jimmy Butler.

A California native, Chandler attended Dominguez High School in Compton before going pro. We've been right there. "We got him out of the end of practice".

The Timberwolves will face the Kings on Friday with tip-off set for 10 p.m. ET.

Lonzo Ball may not be on the floor for the Lakers on Saturday.
