Knicks Rumors: Tyson Chandler, Jerome Jordan, Ronny Turiaf, Chauncey Billups

The New York Knicks are undergoing a whirlwind roster transformation now that the NBA is once again open for business. The Knicks will officially announce the acquisition of 7-foot-1 center Tyson Chandler this afternoon, but that is really just the beginning.

The New York Post is reporting that the Chandler acquisition will, technically, be a sign-and-trade with the Dallas Mavericks. Reserve guard Andy Rautins will reportedly end up in Dallas. 

The Knicks have also traded last year's center, Ronny Turiaf, to the Washington Wizards and are reportedly set to sign Jerome Jordan, a seven-foot 2010 second-round draft pick who played overseas last season. Chandler, Jordan and Jared Jeffries would give the Knicks interior defense they did not have a season ago.

The expected release of Chauncey Billups using the newly-negotiated amnesty clause included in the CBA has not happened yet, but is likely to happen soon. Reports have had the Knicks negotiating with veteran Mike Bibby as a stop-gap at point guard.
