It looks like the Cleveland Cavaliers will have to look elsewhere for defensive help. According to The Arizona Republic's Scott Bordrow, the Phoenix Suns are likely to retain Tyson Chandler after buying out Greg Monroe: "The timing of the buyout is odd in that the NBA trading deadline is Feb. 8. Clearly, the Suns didn't feel they could get anything in return for Monroe in a trade. The buyout also likely means the Suns do not expect to trade veteran center Tyson Chandler before the trading deadline. If Phoenix thought it could trade Chandler, it likely wouldn't have bought out Monroe's deal.
