If the Denver Nuggets aren’t careful, their entire team may be playing in China here soon.
Restricted free agent Wilson Chandler has already decided he’d play for the Zhejiang Guangsha in the China Basketball League, free agent JR Smith is reportedly being offered $3 million, which is the highest any player would get to play in the CBA. And finally, free agent big man Kenyon Martin recently told the Denver Post he is mulling over offers to play for a team from China.
According to reports, Martin would make more than $3 million offered to Smith and therefore he’d be the highest paid player. Martin and Smith are both not likely to return to Denver and playing in China would all but make it official.
Martin is coming off of a season in which he made a team-high $16.55 million according to to Yahoosports.
