Tyson Chandler had a bad taste in his mouth from wearing a New York Kincks jersey for the past three seasons. 

That's because the last time he wasn't wearing a Knicks uniform, he was in Dallas, hoisint the NBA championship trophy.

The 31-year-old is in his 13th year in the NBA, and knows time might be running out on his chances to win another NBA championship.

"Your time is too short in this league and I want to win a championship, another one," Chandler told the New York Post.

"I definitely don't want to wast another season. I'm not into wasting seasons."

The Knicks finished ninth in the eastern conference this season, but may not have the financial flexibility for a total roster overhaul this summer. 

The Knicks payroll next season is over $91 million, if Carmelo Anthony picks up his $23.5 million option, and that would put New York roughly $20 million over the luxury tax line.

Looking forward to the summer of 2015, the Knicks have less than $13 million in salray commitments as of now

Chandler is set to make $14.6 million next season, and has averaged just over 10 points and 10 rebounds per game in his three seasons in the Big Apple, and was named the Defensive Player of the Year in 2012.
