Tyson Chandler thinks Rasheed Wallace can help the Knicks.

Chandler watched Wallace workout for the team on Saturday.

"I hope he stays. I don't know what the situation is but he's a great communicator on defense and we know he can knock down the open 3 and the jump shot," Chandler said on Wednesday. "To have myself and Amare [Stoudemire] and to have Marcus Camby and Rasheed as backups, it's going to be nice."

The Knicks have 13 guaranteed contracts, two short of the maximum allotment of 15.
