The Dallas Mavericks may be interested in trading for Tyson Chandler if the New York Knicks make him available.

The Mavericks' decision to let Chandler walk in free agency in 2011 after their title win has been one of the most controversial decisions of Mark Cuban's tenure as owner. The Mavericks were pessimistic about how Chandler would age during the contract, while also wanting to preserve their cap space for a run at Dwight Howard and either Chris Paul or Deron Williams.
