It’s official.

After clearing waivers, former Phoenix Suns big man Tyson Chandler is now a member of the Los Angeles Lakers.

It should come as little surprise, however, as Chandler was linked to L.A. following the news of his buyout with the Suns.

The 36-year-old center was in the final year of his four-year, $52 million deal with Phoenix.

In a little over three seasons with the Suns, Chandler averaged 8.6 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game.

In a video to Lakers fans, Chandler expressed his excitement to play for L.A.

Chandler, who is in his 18th NBA season, is averaging 3.7 points and 5.6 rebounds this season.
