LOS ANGLES (Reuters) – The Los Angeles Lakers made official what had been speculated for days, signing free agent center Tyson Chandler.

While the team did not announce details, ESPN reported the deal will pay Chandler $2,109,867 and the Lakers will take on a cap hit of $1,333,140. Chandler agreed to take $2.1 million off his $13.6 million salary to secure a buyout from the Phoenix Suns last weekend.

Also per ESPN, Chandler can be traded beginning February 6, one day before the trade deadline.

Chandler, 36, is in his 18th season. The 7-foot-1 veteran averaged 3.7 points and 5.6 rebounds in seven games for the Suns this season.
