"If they manage to sign Paul George and either LeBron James or DeMarcus Cousins then they can start to think about homecourt advantage for at least one postseason round." Those were some of the last…

The Rockets have announced the signing of Tyson Chandler.
Chandler is looking like the backup to Clint Capela and could be called on more in certain matchups, though he doesn't figure to play enough to support any worthwhile fantasy value. It's possible that Chandler holds appeal in deeper leagues as a rebounding specialist but that should be about it.

Tyson Chandler signed a one-year deal with the Rockets on Friday.
Chandler will theoretically provide some veteran leadership and stability to the second unit as a rebounder and defender. There's nothing to see here for fantasy purposes as it's just hard to see him playing enough minutes to matter.

The Rockets remain interested in adding Tyson Chandler, per Sam Amick of The Athletic.
Chandler was rumored to be a Houston target last week and the Rockets remain in the market for a backup center. He'd certainly give them a rebounding presence but it's unlikely that Chandler would be counted on for serious minutes. That's true of pretty much anywhere he lands.

Tyson Chandler is a "likely target" in the Rockets' search for a backup center, per ESPN's Tim MacMahon.
Chandler is running out of gas but is a solid veteran presence who can still make things work as a rebounder and team defender. With Houston set to run it back without any major moves (barring something truly unexpected), there would be no need to keep tabs on Chandler should he end up with the Rockets.

Tyson Chandler received a DNP-CD in Tuesday’s season finale.
Chandler was able to escape Phoenix and latch on with a team that looked like a playoff contender with a need for rebounding, but the Lakers went off the rails and Chandler was a predictable non-factor in fantasy. His averages of 3.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 0.4 blocks in 15.9 mpg speak to that. The veteran missed time with neck stiffness (eight games), back issues, a toe sprain and illness, though the illness coincided with the team folding up shop so it’s tough to say whether that’s more of a gentle DNP situation. Chandler doesn’t want to retire and should find work as veteran presence but he was a top-350 player and shouldn’t be part of the fantasy equation next year.

Reggie Bullock (right plantar fasciitis) and Tyson Chandler (illness) are questionable to play on Friday vs. the Hornets.
With Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and JaVale McGee playing so well lately we don’t think either of Bullock or Chandler will get much run even if they do end up playing.

Chandler also sat out last night and we might've seen the last of him outside of spot duty with the Lakers playing out the string. JaVale McGee is rolling and it'll be Johnathan Williams and Mo Wagner coming off the bench.
