Why Did Oklahoma Thunder Rescind Tyson Chandler Trade?
Tyson Chandler isn’t returning to Oklahoma City after all.
Thunder general manager Sam Presti announced the team has rescinded a trade with the New Orleans Hornets for Chandler after Oklahoma City medical officials weren’t satisfied with results of a physical taken Wednesday night.
Several media reports said the Thunder’s concern was turf toe. Chandler had surgery on the toe two years ago, an injury that hampered him at times during last season’s playoffs. With the trade deadline nearing today at 2 p.m., it now appears the Thunder won’t make a major deal.
