If it's for the 30mil that was mentioned previously, he just lost a ton of money in free agency. I expected him to get between 8-10 a year.

The deal is still 5yrs it's important to note for salary cap reasons

i'm routing for the nuggets now. they've done a really good job "post melo" and with chandler, gallo, lawson, and afflalo as their main guards, they're only looking up. denver FO has done a fantastic job over there.

Damn, the Raptors were going to offer a lot more than this lol.

Good for Denver though, another bargain deal. This team should be a serious contender in the near future. My question is whether gallo/chandler start together or one becomes a great sixth man

Lawson
Afflalo
Gallo/Chandler
Faried
Javale?

Great young core :drool:

Its a 5 year deal including this season. So its really 4 years plus the 21+ games left in the season. I would fire my agent if I were Chandler. He definitely settled for less. Toronto was going to overpay for him. He was looking for 10 - 12 mil a year and had to settle for 9 mil a year. Very weak negotiations when there are teams that would pay him what hes looking for.

Good for him. Wilson was a great player who was shitted on when he was put into the Melo deal. As was Gallo. The mainstream media and most of the PSD said they werent worth it, they were only role player, they suck etc.

People say Knicks fans over rate our players, but we were never more right then when we spoke about the skill level of Wilson and Gallo.

Im glad they are receiving the recognition as being good solid NBA players like they are today. Though we hit a rough patch with the Denver fanbase Im happy for them. Those are 2 great players they have now. Good luck IllWIll and Rooster Ill be keeping an eye on your careers and cheering.

Obviously but on paper it's a 5 year deal worth 7.4 mil a year worth 37 mil

I really like w.chandler. i was hoping my raptors would be lucky enough to land him.

what i dont get is why denver wants him when he plays the same position as gallo. in any case he is a good player and they got him for a good cost. congrads nuggets fans.

Not bad to have two players like gallo and ill will when both can play multiple positions and play them well. Funny that these players are something special now but last season people treated them as trash. I guess being a knick had something to do with that!

Well said, DEN will be my West coast team as long as those 2 are major contributors there. I will get bashed for saying this but in my eyes those 2 will always be Knicks....

I like the dude a lot, but it's already a really deep rotation.

Are they going to carve him out the 30+ minutes a game he deserves now that they have Rudy Fernandez/Corey Brewer/Faried?
