Tyson Chandler on the move this summer?

The Washington Post is reporting that "The phone will likely ring again this summer for the 7-foot-1 Chandler,
who nearly joined the Thunder for the low, low price of the expiring
contracts of Joe Smith and Chris Wilcox and rights to second-round pick
Devon Hardin."

It is also reported that "

Chandler, 26, is owed $24.6 million over the next two seasons —
assuming he exercises his player option for $12.8 million in 2010-11 —
and Hornets owner George Shinn is set to pay a steep luxury tax penalty
next season, when his team’s payroll is scheduled to reach about $76.5

the salary cap is expected to decrease.

it, because it’s a business. I’m just hoping that things will be able
to change. I know I’m the one that teams are calling for."
