Tyson Chandler: NBA Deal Might Not Allow Me To Remain A Dallas Maverick

"Free agent Mavericks center Tyson Chandler fears that the new NBA collective bargaining agreement could limit Dallas from re-signing him.

"With the collective bargaining agreement and some of the things that they're trying to enforce, it would basically prohibit me from coming back," Chandler told KESN-FM FM in Dallas. "It would take it out of my hands -- and the organization's -- because it would almost be pretty much impossible for me to re-sign. I just think that can be the worst thing that can happen."

"For years, the Lakers have been able to win championships and re-sign their players and keep them there so they can go out for another title," Chandler said. "Now, to put that deal in place after we win ours, I don't like it one bit."

In a propose labor deal, there would be a more punitive luxury tax for teams who spend over the salary cap. The Mavericks have traditionally spent more than the salary cap. They were hit for a luxury tax reportedly around $20 million this past season."
