This has not been a great season for the Knicks, which includes Tyson Chandler. The veteran big man has battled age and injury, as the Knicks have fallen to a dismal 21-40. 

And it's left the big man wondering about his future with the organization.

“That’s something I have to visit during the offseason,’’ Chandler said, via the New York Post. “We’re all going to have a lot of decisions to make."

Chandler's contract expires after the 2015 season after signing a four-year, $65 million deal in 2011. His trade value has greatly diminished at this point, along with his skills, so it's hard to figure what exactly the Knicks could get in return. 

But at 31, Chandler isn't interested in being part of a rebuilding plan. And with the future of Carmelo Anthony up in the air, that could complicate things as well. For now, he's there, and he's saying that's his focus.

“For me, it’s important regardless [to finish out strong]," Chandler said. “I got a lot more pride than this, coming in night in, night out losing, and not putting forth the type of effort it takes to win. At this stage of my career and what I’ve established, I refuse to let it put a blemish on it."
