Five Out: Every angle on the Tyson Chandler trade

Mike Ehrmann

Looking around the web for all of the reactions to the Mavericks trading for Tyson Chandler.

1. REACTIONS FROM AROUND THE WEB

Tyson Chandler is a Dallas Maverick. Where to start?

Well, there's a good chance you already read Hal Brown break it down on our site. If not, go do that real quick and come back. We also have a staff roundtable with some thoughts on the move.

Our friend Andytobo has not one, but two columns about the move. On Crab Dribbles, he looks at seven different angles of the trade and determines the Mavericks got the best player. He writes something similar on WFAA, albeit a little shorter.

Rob Mahoney praises the Mavericks for doing a deal that still leaves them with plenty of flexibility.

Cap guru David Lord eats 34 donuts...wait, no, he has 34 donuts about the trade, what it means for the Mavericks and what it means going forward.

Think the trade was the Mavericks admitted they made a mistake in letting Chandler go? Mark Cuban, through ESPN Dallas, says no way -- comparing the two is like apples and oranges.

Over at Ball Don't Lie, Kelly Dwyer says both teams revealed their hands for the offseason, and it should be fun to watch them try to carry them out.

2. NOW THE REAL FUN BEGINS

The Mavericks believe they are "real players" for Carmelo and LeBron now.

Hopefully, the Mavericks understand that "real players" means "huge long shots but they have a chance." If you want to know how LeBron and Carmelo would fit with the Mavericks, there is no other answer except for "exceptionally well." Here is our player reviews for LeBron and for Carmelo.

3. WHAT ABOUT THE DRAFT?

Well, the Mavericks have no picks. Don't completely discount the possibility of them trading into the second round if there's a player they like, like MacMahon suggests is a possibility.

4. SO...RAYMOND FELTON

It's his birthday today, because of course.

I really enjoyed the first three replies to this tweet, though.

In more serious news, Felton avoids prison time in a gun charge. The NBA will now review the case and it's very possible that he could be suspended for a few games to start the season.

5. WELCOME HOME, TYSON
