Upon seeing Wilson Chandler in the Denver locker room, Nuggets coach George Karl greeted him with a handshake and a smile.
“I could’ve used you tonight,” Karl said.

That wish could soon be a reality.

Chandler, a restricted free agent, attended Denver’s 103-101 overtime victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night and said he hopes to sign a new contract with the Nuggets “in the next week or so.”

Chandler, 24, finished last season with the Nuggets but spent the past several months playing in China, where he averaged 26.6 points and 11.6 rebounds in 32 games with the Zhejiang Guangsha Lions.

“I like being in Denver,” he said. “It’s a great team, a great young team. They’re playing hard. The injuries have been tough, but it’s still a pretty good team. I’m looking forward to being back.”

Chandler, a versatile small forward, still needs clearance from the Chinese Basketball Association before he can return to the NBA. He also can talk to other teams, but the Nuggets would have three days to match any contract offer.

“I hope we get him back,” Nuggets executive vice president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri said. “We’re excited to have him here. It’s good to see him again.”

After watching the game from a center-court suite, Chandler spent some time with his former teammates in the locker room.

“He can do a lot,” point guard Ty Lawson said. “He’s a shooter, a defender. He’s big for us. Hopefully can get that (clearance from China) and go out and play.”

Chandler did not anticipate problems receiving clearance. In the meantime, he and the Nuggets will continue discussions on a new contract.

“A long-term deal would be fine,” he said. “Hopefully I can get back and help the team out.”


Shocker :speechless: I coulda sworn he was going to the knicks! :D

Very good player. You should resign him. He will sign because the money is great and he needs to secure his future. He ain't a "marketable" player. But Chandler does not want to be in Denver -- he wants to be in NY.


Chandler loves NY. He didnt even want to be traded. I dont know how Denvers cap space is, but if they cant resign him this summer, he will be talking to the Knicks for sure.


Actually Chandler does want to play with the Knicks. He loves New York, loved being here, and was respected widely with the fans. Denver owns his rights. But you wouldn't know that cause you got your hater goggles on and they getting fogged up with envy.


I don't think Chandler has much choice this year, he's a RFA and teams are set for the most part and have spent their money.

If he signs only a 1 year deal that would indicate he doesn't want to be in DEN longterm. His agent has come out and said he would love to come back to NY.


Hes saying all the right things because he has no other real options contender wise. If he signs a long term deal then he really means it. If he does a 1 year deal so hes unrestricted next year then he clearly wants out.

My money is since the season is practically over when he has to sign with a team that he does a one year deal and tests the free agent market in the off season.

It wont be because the Nuggets suck for him doing that. Thats the financially responsible thing to do in my opinion if I were him. He gets to pick where he lives and if he doesnt want to live in Denver he has the option to go to the destination he prefers in the off season.

I honestly would love him back in NYK but I know its highly unlikely that will happen. I think he would be an incredible addition to Portland or San Antonio moving forward.

After reading that sarcastic fluff piece on D Howard going to the Spurs I think that team would be real sick with D Howard and Wilson Chandler.


I didnt post it to bait knicks fans im just saying since most ny fans posting were claiming he wanted ny and didnt want to sign with the nuggets i was surprised he said he would sign long term with denver and not ny.

What part of him being a restricted free agent dont you get? Nuggets can match anything that is offered to him. Like I said in the quoted text you so vigorously posted, if he signs a long term deal then I believe he meant what he said.

I still think realistically he does a 1 year deal to test the free agent market and see whats out there. He played real well in China and he will be a hot commodity in the offseason if he signs a 1 year deal and finishes out this already abbreviated season.

He hasnt signed the contract either. When its a multi year deal then he wants to be there. Still all speculation until he signs the deal and for how much. No one ever questioned whether he was going back to Denver. Its was for how long will he be going back to Denver. He was a restricted free agent so any team offering him a long term deal knew that if Denver wants him they can match. With all the injuries they have right now it would make more sense for no other team to offer him a thing other then a 1 year deal so he can test the market next season.

i expect another team to offer him any where from 7-8 million a year next season.

You mean he needs clearance from FIBA. All USA players need to finish their contracts in the CBA but need a letter from FIBA to authorize NBA teams to sign him. If they were to skip that step the USA Basketball team would recieve some type of sanctions.

The nuggets dont have to sign him for this season if he wont sign a multi-year deal. If he doesnt want a multi-year deal with denver then he would have to agree to a sign and trade and we could easily make enough room to match contracts offered by any team. He also said he would agree to a multi-year deal so your future telling seems wrong.

There was an article in Toronto about how the Raps were (rumored) to throw more money at him than Denver could afford in the off-season. I guess there's a lot of factors involved in something like that happening but I wouldn't mind if they overpaid a bit for Chandler. I just have a feeling that he really likes Denver so he would take less money to play there.

Amnestying either of them would be foolish in my opinion. I would save that amnesty for another Nene injury. His contract is pretty heavy.

You can get pieces for Birdman. Not sure what value Harrington has though. Maybe a team like Sacramento would like to pair him with Cousins. I would love to see those facial expressions on the court. Thats a good skit for SNL - Cousins and Harrington on the same team watch out lol.

What leverage? He already got paid in China and the season is half over. The team is injured and they clearly need him back asap. They are definitely in no position to play hardball with the way I hear Denver fans talk about their injury woes. They need live bodies at this point.

Wilson Chandler could be a missing piece for a lot of contenders. It will be interesting to see what move he makes or what he feels his value is.

Ill be honest with you. i think devner will use him this year and wont match a lucrative deal for him next season. why would you guys spend all that money on 2 small forwards when you still have to sign lawson and you have more then capable back up wing players. it just seems like a dumb move. i would def keep that cap space to fill a position of need. number one priority re sign lawson and then take it from there.

Maybe your right on that. Not a new cba guru here so not sure if thats the rule or not. If that is the rule then I can definitely see Harrington being launched if they cant find a trade partner for him. I still think Birdman can be traded to a team without having to be amnestied.

Has Harrington even been good this season? While he was in NY he was a volume shooter and he either won you games or really lost you games. It was more of the latter.

Tell me where I said he would be a Knick again? All I said was:

- He loves NY.
- He didnt want to be traded. When all the trade rumors were going on, they interviewed him and asked him about being traded to Denver and he responded, "Oh I dont want to go to Denver."

And thats basically it. If he signs a one year deal with Denver, you dont think he will be talking to the Knicks in the summer? We probably cant even sign him, but you are crazy if you dont think he would even talk to them.

I never stated he would DEFINITELY be a Knick again, so you fail troll.

no disrespect to nugget fans but your currently sitting at 8th seed in the west. thats not called contending.

also put yourself in the players shoes. why would you play for a team thats already signed their future smallforward and you will likely have to play behind him and take a pay cut to do so?

why not go to a team where you can start & get paid ? he is only like 24 years old. he has lots of options. why come off the bench and get paid less ??

its not even a good idea for denver. why sign two small forwards to lucrative deals ? you still need to resign lawson as well. just doesnt make much sence.

yea i know but when we're healthy we are definitely one of the top teams in the nba which we have proven this season.. also if we sign him to a crazy deal dont think the nuggets would keep him it would most likely be to trade him for picks or a good player in return which actually makes sense. from his point of view he could leave but he wont play this year and would have to agree with a sign and trade or he could sign long term with us now and play this season with the team...

what im saying is the nuggets dont have to keep him if they sign him in the offseason by matching offers they could easily trade him for assets which is a win win for us no matter what

yea i know but when we're healthy we are definitely one of the top teams in the nba which we have proven this season.. also if we sign him to a crazy deal dont think the nuggets would keep him it would most likely be to trade him for picks or a good player in return which actually makes sense. from his point of view he could leave but he wont play this year and would have to agree with a sign and trade or he could sign long term with us now and play this season with the team...

what im saying is the nuggets dont have to keep him if they sign him in the offseason by matching offers they could easily trade him for assets which is a win win for us no matter what

cant debate that. there are lots of options. it will be interesting to see how it unfolds next season.

I never said he didnt like Denver. I said he didnt want to be traded and he loves NY.

Also, if this thread is about Chandler and the Nuggets MAYBE signing a long term deal, why even bring up Knicks fans in the first place? Oh, I know why, to bait and troll.

You dont understand the free agency at all. There is no leverage the Nuggets have. If he decides to take a 1 year deal offer from someone else to get rid of being restricted then all the Nuggets can do is match. The ball is in Chandlers court.

i dont think you get it here are the options for you


He doesnt have a contract offer right now so if he doesnt take a multi year he wont play this season and will still be a restricted free agent.
He can sign a multi-year with the nuggets now
If he doesnt wanna play with the nuggets he can wait till the offseason and hope the nuggets dont match offers made to him
The nuggets will match the offers, soo he would have to agree to a sign and trade deal if he doesnt wanna play for the nuggers


The nuggets dont have to give him a 1 year contract they could just leave him until the off season and complete a sign and trade if he doesnt want to sign.

the ball is in denvers court either they get chandler or assets.

Amnestying either of them would be foolish in my opinion. I would save that amnesty for another Nene injury. His contract is pretty heavy.

You can get pieces for Birdman. Not sure what value Harrington has though. Maybe a team like Sacramento would like to pair him with Cousins. I would love to see those facial expressions on the court. Thats a good skit for SNL - Cousins and Harrington on the same team watch out lol.

Birdman is garbage, Harrington's value is much higher



no disrespect to nugget fans but your currently sitting at 8th seed in the west. thats not called contending.

also put yourself in the players shoes. why would you play for a team thats already signed their future smallforward and you will likely have to play behind him and take a pay cut to do so?

why not go to a team where you can start & get paid ? he is only like 24 years old. he has lots of options. why come off the bench and get paid less ??

its not even a good idea for denver. why sign two small forwards to lucrative deals ? you still need to resign lawson as well. just doesnt make much sence.

Nuggets were 2nd before injuries came in, so they are contending. As much as the Knicks are in the East, (if not more)

He can field offers I believe, but Im pretty sure that if another team trys to sign a RFA they have to offer multiple years. Otherwise we would see a bunch of 1 year deals for guys to break free of the restricted tag.

Also to those wondering why we would spend money on two SF's its because both of them are long and versatile. Wilson can play and defend 2 thru 4 and Gallo can play 3 or 4. They also play well together and both got starter kind of minutes last year so it won't be a problem. We want him and I expect us to lock him up for as long as he wants to be here.

Wilson Chandler's list of possible destinations now extends beyond his former team in Denver, his agent, Chris Luchey, told SI.com.

Chandler, the five-year veteran and restricted free agent small forward who played in China during the lockout, visited Toronto on Tuesday and is considering joining the Raptors. Chandler is still waiting for his clearance to return to the NBA from the Chinese Basketball Association but was in Denver on Monday for a game against Minnesota, talking contract terms with Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri and even visiting his old locker room.

Luchey said the Raptors (9-23), who have salary cap room to add Chandler without the use of an exception, are in the mix and that he is talking to six other teams. Chandler made $2.1 million last season and had been hoping for a long-term deal with Denver.

"We are exploring all avenues," Luchey said. "Our talks [with Denver] thus far have been OK. It's just the nature [of free agency]. They have options and Will has options."

Chandler has said for months that his intention is to re-sign with the Nuggets, but Ujiri -- according to Luchey -- has made it clear he has no interest in signing him for only the rest of the season and that he wants a long-term deal. If an agreement between the two sides can't be reached soon, Chandler has two options.

He has until March 1 to sign an offer sheet with another team, then either join that club or return to the Nuggets if they match the offer. After March 1, Chandler can't sign with any team but Denver for the remainder of the season. And because the Nuggets aren't showing interest in that option, he could then be left to sit out the rest of the season and be a restricted free agent again in July.

Chandler spent his first four-plus seasons with the Knicks, but was sent to Denver as part of the Carmelo Anthony trade last February. He has averaged 13.9 points and 5.3 rebounds per game while shooting 45.1 percent for his career.

If Toronto is able to move Barbosa for picks and TPE or something, or decides to amnesty someone, they will be able to offer more. At this point Denver can, and apparently will, match any offer. But following this through apparently Chandler is considering sitting the remainder of the season and testing the waters again in the summer. Appears it is no longer a guarantee that he will be returning to Denver...
