Free agent centre Tyson Chandler has agreed to a one-year deal with the Houston Rockets, his agent Jeff Schwartz told ESPN on Friday.

The deal comes just one day after the Rockets reportedly reached a deal to acquire star guard Russell Westbrook from the Oklahoma City Thunder. 

Chandler finished the 2018-19 season with the Los Angeles Lakers after agreeing to a buyout with the Phoenix Suns. He averaged 3.1 points and 5.6 rebounds in 55 games last season.

The 36-year old won a championship with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011, and won defensive player of the year with the New York Knicks in 2012.
