The demands on Tyson Chandler are greater than they were during his first stint with the Dallas Mavericks.

When the Mavs pulled off another trade to bring back the center — this time a pre-draft deal with the New York Knicks — Chandler returned to Dallas as a centerpiece. Unlike before, Chandler now must be a dominant force for the Mavs, slated as the 7-seed in the Western Conference, to make any realistic run in the playoffs.

“This team needs me more,” Chandler said. “I’m ready for the challenge. My thing is, I just want to go in healthy. I’ve been doing some extra preparation with the training staff, just gearing myself to get ready. If I go in healthy, I know what I’m capable of doing.”
