Report: Knicks close to trade to send Tyson Chandler back to Mavericks

Publish date:

The Knicks and Mavericks are close to a deal that would send Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton to Dallas in exchange for Samuel Dalembert, Jose Calderon and Shane Larkin, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

SI's Chris Mannix reports that the Mavs may include Wayne Ellington as well.

The deal could be finalized today, Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reports. He also reports the deal will include both of the Mavericks' second round picks in Thursday's draft. 

The Knicks acquired Chandler from Dallas in a three-way trade with Washington prior to the 2011-12 season. Felton, who started at point guard for the Knicks each of the past two years, recently reached a plea agreement in a weapons case and will avoid jail time. He could still be disciplined by the NBA.
