    Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

    "We're very happy that we have come to terms with Tyson and that he will remain a member of the Chicago Bulls, " executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson said. "Tyson's play last season was an important factor to our success and we hope to take the next step forward with Tyson being a major contributor to our team. He is fully aware of our commitment to him and he understands his responsibility to the organization, our front office and his teammates."

    The 7-1, 235-pound Chandler played in a career-high 80 games last season with the Bulls and averaged 8.0 points and career highs of 9.7 rebounds (ninth in the NBA), 1.76 blocks (13th in the league) and 27.4 minutes per game. He also shot 49.4 percent from the field and a career-best .673 from the free throw line.

    Chandler led the team in rebounding in 53 games, scored 10 or more points 30 times, grabbed 10 or more rebounds on 36 occasions and registered a team-best 21 double-doubles. His 693 rebounds in a reserve led the league, as did his 131 rejections.

    In six playoff games last season, he posted averages of 11.7 ppg, 9.7 rpg, 2.17 bpg and 1.3 apg in 28.7 mpg.

    "I'm ecstatic that this contract is done," Chandler said. "To know that I will be in Chicago for the next six years is definitely a dream. Since I've been in Chicago, the city has been my home and it feels so good to go home." "This is the outcome we were working toward, Chicago is a great city and John is taking the team in the right direction. I am thrilled for Tyson to begin the next chapter of his career with the Bulls," Chandler's agent, Jeff Schwartz, said.

    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    No contract details? I'll bet Chandler cracked and "settled" for the $60Mish.

    Sounds like the Bulls caved.

    Last week the rumor was that the Bulls were offering a deal similar to Dalemberts 6 yr $64 million, but that they were about $12 million apart. He must have gotten fairly close to max deal.

    another report i read said that the deal was basically at dalembert's level (~$64M), but loaded with incentives that could bring it to $70M+

    hard to say that the bulls overpaid, considering what other (lesser) free agent big men have been getting lately.

    Well the bulls will probably be looking to move him within the next couple of years once they realize he's not worth half of what there playing him.With the salary cap and luxuray tax you really have to be sure the players who get max contracts are worth every penny of that contract. I just don't think you can give close to max deals to players who are not go to guys, let alone the fact he has a history of getting banged up and has no offensive game at all. Same thing with the sixers signing Dalembert to that huge contract.They'll regret that.
