In fact, Chandler said he has been told he will not be traded. He takes that knowledge with a grain of salt. "If a deal comes along that's a pretty good deal, you've got to make it of course," Chandler said. "And some guys say they're not going to trade you, and then they trade you. I'm not saying that (Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly) is that guy, but you never know. You can never feel too safe about anything." Denver Post

The Nuggets aren't actively trying to trade Wilson Chandler, but a number of teams have inquired about his availability. He's having the best season of his career so far, is probably their best two-way player, and has been arguably the most consistent player on the roster. Denver Post

The Nuggets' preference, actually, is to hold onto Chandler, and my understanding of the situation is they've told him so. And yet, I think it would be naive to think it means a trade wouldn't occur — especially if the Nuggets are getting attractive offers and they are slipping down the Western Conference standings.

A number of executives view the Denver Nuggets as prime sellers between now and the trade deadline, and it makes sense. The Nuggets are stocked with talented, reasonably priced role players, but they lack a single star player to carry them. Wilson Chandler and Timofey Mozgov, both acquired in the Carmelo Anthony trade in 2011, have garnered a ton of interest, per rival executives. Bleacher Report

Next stop, 8,000. Nuggets point guard Andre Miller moved into sole possession of ninth place on the NBA’s career assist list Saturday night when he threw an alley oop to Wilson Chandler in the second quarter of Denver's game against the Dallas Mavericks. It was Miller’s 7,988th assist in 15 NBA seasons, moving him past Rod Strickland. Miller is one of only eight players in NBA history with at least 15,000 points and 7,500 assists. “I think he has been one of the most underrated point guards since he he's been in the league,” Denver coach Brian Shaw said. “He's a guy that just has always got the job done and has always been effective. To last as long as he has is one thing, but to be moving up the ladder still at this stage is a great accomplishment for him.” NBA.com

Wilson Chandler's season debut has been pushed back to Wednesday. The Nuggets forward was hoping to get his first game action of the season Monday against the Jazz. Chandler said he was ready to play, but the Nuggets' medical staff wasn't convinced and put the kibosh on it for another couple of days. He has missed every game this season because of a strained hamstring. "We will be conservative with him," coach Brian Shaw said. Denver Post
