HoopsHype Wilson Chandler rumors


May 6, 2015 Updates

Wilson Chandler’s contract for next season is now fully guaranteed, with the time period for the Nuggets to release him at a fraction of the cost now expired. Next season is the last of his current deal with the Nuggets. He’ll make $7.1 million and be an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2016. Chandler had one of his best seasons as a pro in 2014-15, averaging 13.9 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. Denver Post

The Nuggets have rested players for two straight games. On Monday night, those players just happened to be three of the team's four leading scorers and the leading rebounder since the coaching change in a season that team brass — and many fans — hope ends with a high lottery pick. Not everyone is pleased, though. Forward Wilson Chandler was asked if he expected a full roster Thursday with the long rest between games. "I have no idea what they are going to do," Chandler said. "Whoever is on the court just has to keep playing. It's the nature of the business. I'm not a GM; I don't know what's going on. It's tough when you're fighting together but you're getting set up for failure." Denver Post

Portland remains at the top of the list of teams that want to add Chandler, and that has been the case for weeks now. The Trail Blazers have consistently been most interested in dealing for the Nuggets' small forward as they look to add scoring to their bench. Denver Post

Denver’s Wilson Chandler is on the radar, and the Blazers will not hesitate to send some combination of Thomas Robinson’s $3.6 million expiring deal with another player and a first round draft pick to the Nuggets for the Chandler. Denver could be seeking two first round picks, similar to what they received in the Timofey Mozgov to Cleveland deal, but that is a lot. If that asking price remains high, Portland may wave the white flag on pursing this deal. CSNNW.com

Here is what’s known: the Blazers like Afflalo, but would prefer Chandler. Afflalo is known as a decent locker room guy, can knockdown an open shot, and he’s a veteran, which Terry Stotts likes. Should the Nuggets asking price seem fair, and Chandler is a no-go, it won’t be a surprise to see Afflalo in black and red. CSNNW.com
