This is Chandler's second stint under Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni, who also coached him with the New York Knicks in the 2011-2012 season. The big man has career numbers of 8.4 points and 9.2 rebounds per game, as he has averaged a double-double twice in his career. The Rockets also reportedly invited former No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett to training camp, as the 26-year-old has not played in the NBA since 2017.
Elsewhere, the Minnesota Timberwolves added a young piece from the Golden State Warriors' Finals team, signing forward Jordan Bell to a deal. The contract is reportedly for just one year and is worth $1.6 million. Bell was a second-round selection in the 2017 NBA Draft from the Chicago Bulls, who dealt him to the Warriors on draft night. He does have one ring from the 2017-2018 season, and now two Finals appearances after this past season's loss to the Toronto Raptors. The 24-year-old out of Oregon has put up 3.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in his young NBA career.
