Sources say the Clippers, in an exploratory fashion, have spoken to a few teams regarding the nine-year veteran. One of the teams contacted was the Phoenix Suns, sources relayed to ESPN. A proposal of Jordan in exchange for veteran center Tyson Chandler and the team’s No. 4 pick in the 2017 NBA draft was discussed, sources said. The Suns, however, are believed to have balked at the overture.

Durant also questioned why there was an absence of outrage when teams at the bottom of the standings have implemented a similar “resting” tactic for longer periods of time. “It’s hard for you to just craft a rule out for the top players,” he said. “I’ve seen guys that’s not even in the playoffs resting, sitting out for the rest of the season. And it’s nothing against those guys. I’m not trying to bash them or anything. [Phoenix Suns center] Tyson Chandler is out. They got him sitting out for the rest of the year. I’m sure he wants to play, but they’re not saying anything about Tyson Chandler, so it’s hard for me to really talk about this. It’s not a league-wide rule. It’s not a league-wide concern.

Sitting at his locker, veteran center Tyson Chandler considered what he had just witnessed at the TD Garden. The word that kept popping to mind was “legendary.” Does Booker have everything figured out? No. And to Chandler, that is what’s so impressive. “God willing this kid stays healthy,” he said, “I think he’s going to be a Top 10 scorer of all time.”

Krause believed in Chandler before a lot of folks. At the 2001 NBA draft, he traded Elton Brand to the Clippers for Chandler and forward Brian Skinner. Even though Chandler had been the No. 2 overall pick, the move wasn’t universally accepted. At the time, Chandler was just out of high school, while Brand was a budding star, the 2000 Rookie of the Year. “He made a huge leap, (took) a risk,” Chandler said. “Elton was Rookie of the Year and so you’re trading away something that was guaranteed, something you can see. He was a polished 20 (points) and 10 (rebounds) and you saw him at Duke. With Elton, you knew what you were getting and he traded him for a young, skinny high school kid. I definitely respect him and appreciate his vision, everything he did to get me into the Bulls organization and to trust me at the No. 2 (draft) position.”
