Tyson Chandler is the son of Frank Chandler and Vernie Threadgill, and grew up on the family farm in California, doing jobs like cultivating crops, milking cows and slopping pigs, then moved to San Bernardino, California with his mother. Children teased him because of his height, as he was nearly six feet tall. Tyson’s family then moved to Compton where he went to Dominguez High School, and was the best basketball player, leading the team to the state championship in his senior year, averaging 26 points, 15 rebounds, and eight blocks per game. Chandler was one of the most wanted young centers in the US, with UCLA, Arizona, Syracuse, Memphis, Kentucky, and Michigan wanting to recruit him, but he opted to enter the 2001 NBA draft instead.

The Los Angeles Clippers selected Chandler as the 2nd pick overall, but immediately traded him to the Chicago Bulls for power forward Elton Brand. The Bulls wanted to pair him with fellow high school player Eddie Curry, but Tyson struggled with back injuries during his rookie season, averaging only 6.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks in 19.6 minutes per game. The sophomore year was better as he averaged 9.2 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks in 24.4 minutes per game, and started in 68 out of 75 matches. His net worth was established.

Chandler had his best year in Chicago in the 2004-05 season, when he averaged 8 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks in 27.4 minutes per game, helping the Bulls to reach the playoffs. He signed an improved six-year contract worth nearly $63 million, which increased his net worth by a large margin, but in July 2006, Tyson was traded to the New Orleans Hornets for J.R. Smith and P.J. Brown. Chandler spent arguably his best years in New Orleans, averaging 10 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks per game in 197 regular season matches.

In July 2009, Chandler was traded to the Charlotte Bobcats for the center Emeka Okafor, but struggled with injuries throughout the season. However he still helped the Bobcats to reach their first ever playoffs; still, Charlotte was swept in the first round by the Orlando Magic. The next July, Tyson was traded to the Dallas Mavericks along with fellow center Alexis Ajinca for Matt Carroll, Eduardo Nájera and Erick Dampier. He had a rock-solid season, and won his only NBA ring thus far, averaging 10.1 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks in 27.8 minutes per game. Chandler’s minutes increased in the playoffs, as he successfully managed to stop LeBron James’ and Dwyane Wade’s penetration to the rim, and helped the Mavs to win over the Heat despite being huge underdogs. Tyson was selected to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team.

In a three-team sign-and-trade in December 2011, Chandler agreed to the terms with the New York Knicks in a four-year contract worth $58 million, increasing further his net worth. He was excellent in his first year at Madison Square Garden, recording a league-high .679 field goal percent, being voted as the NBA Defensive Player of the Year and was selected to the All-NBA Third Team. In the next season, Chandler averaged a double-double with 10.4 points and 10.7 rebounds per game which earned him his first All-Star invitation and also secured his place in the NBA All-Defensive First Team.

In June 2014, Tyson was traded back to Dallas along with Raymond Felton, in exchange for Shane Larkin, José Calderón, Wayne Ellington, Samuel Dalembert, and two second round picks. He recorded a double-double per game in 75 matches, but unlike in 2011, the Mavs failed to win the title after a first round play-off defeat to the Houston Rockets.

In July 2015, Chandler moved to the Phoenix Suns and signed a four-year $52 million contract, adding a fair amount to his already large net worth. He recorded 7.2 points and 8.7 rebounds in 24.5 minutes per game in his first season in Phoenix. Chandler is currently a starting center for the franchise.

Tyson Chandler has represented the US national team on three occasions, winning the FIBA Americas Championship in 2007 in Las Vegas, the FIBA World Championship in 2010 in Turkey, and Olympic Games in 2012 in London.

Regarding his personal life, Tyson Chandler married Kimberly in 2005, and they have three children together.
