DALLAS (AP) - Tyson Chandler is ready to tell Carmelo Anthony why he loved Dallas and never wanted to leave after helping the franchise win its first title three years ago.
The veteran center just isn't planning on bombarding his former New York teammate with phone calls and text messages while Anthony ponders free agency.
The Mavericks re-acquired Chandler in a trade with the Knicks, who hope to re-sign Anthony after he opts out of his contract on July 1. The six-player deal left Dallas with no picks in Thursday night's draft. The Mavericks also sent two second-rounders to New York.
The focus for the Mavericks is free agency now. They think the Chandler deal has them well-positioned when the market opens. Dallas reportedly is on Anthony's short list.
