Tyson Chandler Receives Contract Offer From Golden State Warriors, Reports Say

According to Matt Steinmetz at CSN Bay Area, citing multiple sources, the Golden State Warriors have made a contract offer to free agent big man Tyson Chandler. The offer is reportedly worth more than $60 million over a four-year period. To be able to afford Chandler under the salary cap, the Warriors would have to use the amnesty clause on Andris Biedrins, who has $27 million remaining on his contract.

Chandler is arguably the best free agent in this year's class, and there's no team that needs him more than the Warriors. They were dead last in rebounding differential last season and tied for 27th in points allowed. Chandler's interior defense and rebounding was key to the Dallas Mavericks' title run last season, and it's the area in which the Warriors are in need of the most help.
