The Denver Nuggets are the deepest team in the NBA, and from the sounds of it they are just going to get deeper. According to numerous sources, Wilson Chandler is optimistic that the Nuggets will offer him a multi-year contract when his time is done in China.
Ken Berger reported that GM Masai Ujiri will soon travel to China to work out a deal with Chandler. Chandler’s team in China should make a push in the playoffs and so he may not be able to return to Denver until March or even April.
In his short time with the Nuggets last season, Chandler averaged 12.5 points and 5 rebounds a game. It would be interesting to see how Chandler would fit in with the Nuggets plans. Especially with Al Harrington, Andre Miller, Corey Brewer and Rudy Fernandez all getting the top minutes off the bench. Not to mention the Nuggets have two rookies, Jordan Hamilton and Kenneth Faried that barely even see the floor.
Former Nuggets’ forward Kenyon Martin signed with the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday and rumor has it that the New York Knicks may be interested in former Nuggets’ guard JR Smith.
