Tyson Chandler is finally back where he always wanted to be.

Where he pieced together his greatest accomplishment during his solid 13-year career.

Yet, the 7-foot-1 center couldn’t help but see the irony in what has become his second tour of duty with the Dallas Mavericks.

In the summer of 2010, the Mavericks acquired Chandler in a trade with the Charlotte Bobcats. At the time Chandler was in the final year of his contract, but what a year it was for the Mavericks.

Chandler became the emotional and fiery leader for the Mavericks. He protected the rim and brought a defensive culture that helped the Mavericks win the 2011 NBA championship before he signed a four-year, $60 million free-agent contract with the New York Knicks.

Fast forward three years, and owner Mark Cuban and president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson decided to acquire Chandler in a trade with the Knicks.

Again, Chandler is in the final year of his contract.

Last week’s blockbuster trade — involving six players and two draft choices — was so surreal that Chandler couldn’t help but chuckle.

“The funny thing is I was like laughing to myself just Wednesday night,” Chandler said. “Cuban and Donnie are something else.

“I don’t know how they got me twice in trades. I don’t know. It worked out last time. I hope it works about as good as it did last time.’’
