I think Chandler is pretty decent and will fit in nicely. I do think there are some misconceptions about him when I hear people talking about him on the radio, such as hes a budding young talent (hes almost 30 and on his 4th team now) and I think some overestimate the defense thinking they are getting Marcus Camby back because hes lanky like Camby was, but hes a solid player. Hes going to get the Knicks alot of second chance point opportunities and he will also misdirect some shots when the guys up front just get blown by. Hes far superior to Gooden. Plus if things dont work out there will always be a trade market to get a piece for Chandler down the line.
Not with that contract. 15 mil a year for a guy who avg's 8 pts. and 9rebs. and 1 blk a game for his career. He's a nice addition for the knicks but he's being vastly overpaid, but thats what happens in the Free agent market.
Edit: Actualy someone would probably take his expiring contract in 3 years.
