LeBron James welcomed a new team-mate to the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday.
The Lakers announced a deal for Tyson Chandler and his arrival will be beneficial for James who has come under fire this term.
Having joined the Lakers from the Phoenix Suns, Chandler has had a decorated career and has enjoyed spells at the Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks and Chicago Bulls.
The 7ft 1 giant – who was on the US Olympic gold-winning team of 2012 – has won a whole host of accolades.
Among them include being named NBA Champion of 2011, NBA Defensive Player of the Year for 2012 and a year later, he was included in the NBA All-Defensive First Team.
In seven games with the Suns this season, Chandler averaged 3.7 points and 5.6 rebounds in just under 13 minutes per contest.
