Tyson Chandler (back) did not travel for Friday’s game against the Kings.
Chandler says he hopes to play in Saturday’s home game against the Celtics and that puts a bit of a damper on the Jon Leuer party. But both Leuer and Mirza Teletovic should be able to bomb away on a Kings team with a defensive system that gives up threes. They’ve also checked out on head coach George Karl, who is on the outs with just about everybody within the Kings organization.
If they do well then maybe Earl Watson will keep Chandler in a backup role to Alex Len at the center position, leaving Leuer and Teletovic to co-exist in the power forward slot. If that doesn’t happen both Leuer and Teletovic will be hard pressed to keep standard league value, though Leuer’s per-minute stats only require about 25 mpg to do so. If he can simply be let free, he can have easy top-75 upside.
