Former Bulls center Tyson Chandler asking $3.75M in Northfield

Medium 4b23866a06a6539e57c00415a9e673a7 Former Chicago Bulls center Tyson Chandler has listed for sale his five-bedroom, seven-bath home at 2120 Old Willow Road in Northfield for the asking price of $3.75 million.

Chandler paid $4 million for the home in June 2006.

Margie Brook of Baird & Warner real estate is the listing agent for the home.

Chandler,26, spent five seasons in Chicago after he was taken second overall by the Los Angeles Clippers in the 2001 NBA Draft and immediately traded to the Bulls on draft day. Chandler started at least 70 games at center in all but one season in Chicago, posting highs of 9.2 points per game in 2002-03 and 9.7 rebounds per game during the 2004-05 season. The Bulls traded Chandler to the New Orleans Hornets for P.J. Brown and J.R. Smith in July 2006.

Chandler blossomed in his first season in New Orleans, averaging 12.4 rebounds and a career-high 1.8 blocks per game. He posted another career high of 11.8 points per game in 2007-08 and led the league in offensive rebounds as the Hornets claimed their first ever Southwest division title before losing to the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference semifinals.

The Hornets attempted to trade Chandler to the Oklahoma City Thunder in February, but the Thunder voided the trade after Chandler failed to pass the team physical. Originally from Hanford, Calif., he was a McDonald's High School All-American at Dominguez High School in Compton.

There were 53 home sales in Northfield in 2008, with a median sales price of $625,000.
