If his performance in Wednesday's game was any indication, Chandler could serve to be an impactful asset off the bench that could help the Lakers turn it around from their early-season struggles.
The Los Angeles Lakers got an immediate boost from their newest addition in their win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night, and many people believe LeBron James should be thanking one of his former teammates for that. A three-time All-Defensive Team selection (2010-13) and 2013 NBA All-Star, Chandler was a member of the 2011 NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks and won a gold medal with Team USA at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
Luke Walton's job has come under the microscope after his team's hard start to the campaign and his future would have again been questioned had they lost to the Timberwolves.
LeBron even called Jones his "favorite player of all time" at one point and said when he owned an National Basketball Association team in the future, he'd save a spot for him in the front office. "I'd like to say it is going to be better the next game".

Jones played with James in Miami, and followed him to the Cleveland Cavaliers late in his career.
The veteran big man grabbed nine rebounds in 23 minutes and helped LA retain possession and hold a one-point lead when he tipped the ball out to his teammates after a missed shot with seconds remaining. "It's fantastic. I haven't played with a closer like that since Dirk. We got him out at the end of practice and he went in for treatment", Walton said.
"It's been a insane 48 hours", Chandler said after the game.
"The season is still young but we can't use that for too much longer, because these games come around quick", Butler said.
