RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

While Chandler didn't get as much publicity as he did during his first season in New York, he had a near identical campaign from a statistical standpoint. The 31-year-old veteran remained the team's defensive anchor, grabbing 10.7 rebounds and swatting away 1.1 shots per game. He also provided his usual low-volume, high-efficiency marks on offense, averaging 10.4 points per game while shooting 64 percent from the floor and 69 percent from the line. The only complaint filed against Chandler's campaign was that he missed 16 games due to a lingering back issue. At this stage of his career, we know what Chandler has to offer Ė solid rebounding and stellar field goal shooting while adding 1-plus block per night. He's now on the wrong side of 30, but Chandler still appears to have a couple years of quality play in his legs, and the Knicks will continue to rely on him to provide the team with defensive toughness.

2012-13

Lured to the Knicks by a massive $48-million dollar contract prior to the season, Chandler proved to be worth every cent in his first campaign in New York. The 30-year-old veteran came up just shy of averaging a double-double for the second time in his career, finishing with averages of 11.3 points and 9.9 rebounds in 33 minutes per game. That scoring average was the second highest of Chandlerís career and the first time he eclipsed 11 points per game since the 2007-08 season. He was more efficient than ever, hitting an astounding 67.9 percent of his field-goal attempts, which would have qualified for best in the league if he took more than 5.7 shots per game. On the defensive side of the ball, Chandler once again proved to be one the leagueís best, helping boost the Knicksí defense to respectability while blocking 1.4 shots per game. Chandler also managed to stay relatively healthy, appearing in 62 of 66 games. While he dealt with a dislocated finger during the Summer Olympics, the issue isnít expected to be a problem once camp opens. The Knicks will continue to rely on Chandler heavily on the boards and defensive end of the court, but the glut of scoring options (Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire, J.R. Smith, Raymond Felton) on the roster, and the addition of Marcus Camby this offseason, could result in a slight drop off from last season. Heís still a quality No. 2 center to target, but donít go building your frontcourt around Chandler.

2011-12

After an injury-marred season with the Bobcats, Chandler was expected to join the Mavericks as part of a timeshare at center with Brendan Haywood. Instead, Chandler grabbed hold of the starting gig and put together one of the best seasons of his career. The 7-1 big man anchored the Mavericksí defense, making it one of most-improved units in the NBA. He was a nightly double-double threat, finishing the season with averages of 10.1 points, 9.4 rebounds and 1.1 blocks while shooting a career-best 65.4 percent from the floor and 73.2 from the free throw line. Most importantly, Chandler managed to play in 74 games, staying relatively injury free after missing 67 games over his previous two seasons. Chandler signed with the Knicks shortly after the NBA lockout lifted, meaning he'll be in a similar face-paced system and serving as the defense and rebounding big man alongside a talented scoring power forward. If anything, New York's system affords Chandler slightly more upside than he had in Dallas due to the high number of possessions Mike D'Antoni's teams generate.

2010-11

Chandler was sent from Charlotte to Dallas this summer in a deal that had Erick Dampier going the other way. That leaves Brendan Haywood as the only other player with whom Chandler will have to contend for minutes. In his best years-2006-07 and 2007-08 with New Orleans-Chandler has been a top-85 player, buoyed by excellent rebound numbers and field goal percentages, while being taken down by free throw percentages in the mid-50% area. It's unlikely he ascends to those levels this year, however.

2009-10

On the heels of his best two seasons in the NBA, Chandler entered the 2008-09 campaign as one of the top-rated centers in the league. Unfortunately, Chandlerís play was drastically hampered by injuries last season. He averaged just 8.8 points, 8.7 rebounds and 1.2 blocks while appearing in only 45 games. The Hornets quickly lost interest in their starting center and tried trading Chandler to Oklahoma City during the season, but the deal was nixed due to the Thunderís medical staff having concerns with a pre-existing turf toe injury that plagued Chandler during the 2007-08 playoffs. New Orleans welcomed Chandler back for the remainder of the season, but shipped him to Charlotte this summer. In Charlotte, Chandler is expected to man the center position for the starting unit, but coach Larry Brown could also slide him over to power forward at times. While a healthy Chandler shouldnít have any problems regaining the rebounding prowess he had shown in previous years, his offensive production should take a significant hit in Charlotte. Without a premier point guard like Chris Paul creating offensive chances for the seven-footer, and Chandlerís lack of a post-up game, a sharp decline in shooting percentage and points is on the horizon.

2008-09

Chandler is in the perfect system to suit his game. At 7-1, heís extremely long and athletic with the ability to dominate the glass (11.7 rpg) and be disruptive on defense (1.1 bpg). Heís not very polished on offense, though, with no post moves to speak of and very little shooting touch (59.3 % FT). Thatís where playing next to all-world point guard Chris Paul comes in. Chandler averaged a career-high 11.8 ppg on 62.3 percent shooting from the field, and a large chunk of those points came off of the pick-and-roll alley oop play that Paul and Chandler have perfected. Between the dunks of Paul passes and the put-back opportunities created from his league-leading 4.1 offensive rebounds/game, Chandler should continue to get the easy shots that round out his game beyond that of purely the defensive role player.

2007-08

Chandler came on strong over the second half of last season, averaging 12.7 ppg on 65 percent shooting from the field after the All-Star Break to go along with almost 13 boards and two blocks per night. His explosion corresponded with the return to health of Chris Paul, who pushes the pace and breaks down opposing defenses to create easy opportunities for his big men. This plays right into Chandlerís strengths, as heís one of the faster and more athletic big men in the NBA. When healthy and locked in, very few have the ability to keep Chandler off the glass and away from the rim. This season, Chandler has the upside to put up Marcus Camby-like numbers across the board, though be aware that Chandler can really damage your free-throw percentage.

2006-07

Chandler had a disappointing year last season but the change in scenery may help him. He practiced a great deal during this off-season, adjusted his shooting form, and has vowed to come in with a more offensive mindset. While weíll have to wait and see if the changes will actually translate to greater offensive production, itís realistic that heíll score about 10 points a game mostly on put-backs. His defense and rebounding ability is still top-notch, and heíll put up 10 rebounds and 1.5 blocks a game. What may affect his stats more than his change in shooting form is the amount of playing time. If he can stay healthy and out of foul trouble (3rd in league with 3.8 per game), his numbers could jump by playing starter minutes. Donít count on him to make many free throws though, he averages 61.5% for his career, shooting a career low of 50.3% last year.

2005-06

Chandler still isn't the player that Elton Brand is (the Bulls traded Brand to acquire Chandler in 2001), but he showed the kind of force he can be in the last four games of Chicago's playoff series against Washington, averaging 16 points, 11 rebounds and 2.25 blocks over that span. An active rebounder and shot-blocker, Chandler ended up 10th in the league in rebounding at 9.7 per game, and his1.8 rejections per contest are well above replacement value for a power forward. Chandler is already a defensive force, but has also worked hard on his shooting touch, knocking down 49% of his shots last year. Expect him to see more touches in the offense this season, and if his minutes go up over the 30-per-game mark, look out.

2004-05

Chandler has shown flashes of his considerable potential in three seasons since being drafted out of high school. This is the season where he grows up. Reports from Chicago say he's refined his shooting in the offseason and been one of the Bulls' hardest workers in conditioning programs. If he can stay healthy, look for him to become a major part of the offense, with 15-and-9 averages a real possibility.

2003-04

When coach Bill Cartwright committed to giving him 30 minutes per game, Chandler started to produce. Before a throat injury ended his season in April 2003, he averaged 11.8 points, 9.7 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game during February and March. He also had 11 double-doubles in that time. He can play in the paint or on the perimeter, and possesses a nice touch with a 53.6 field-goal percentage. He will be the starting power forward and appears to be on the way up. This could be the last year youíre able to sneak him through the draft.
