HoopsHype Wilson Chandler rumors

April 15, 2013 Updates

Chandler played 33 minutes Sunday off the bench, though he started the second half in place of injured Kenneth Faried. Chandler finished with 11 points, 3-of-13 shooting and four rebounds. Denver's bench, which got back the services of Chandler and Andre Miller, contributed 48 points to the Nuggets' 118-109 victory. The mild-mannered Chandler didn't necessarily agree with the foul trouble reasoning, but said he was fine with Karl's decision. "He told me before the game," Chandler said. "I'm cool with it. No problem. I liked starting, but whatever is better for the team." Denver Post

Limited to four games this season while recovering from hip surgery, Chandler is set to return to the court Sunday night when the Denver Nuggets face the Golden State Warriors at Pepsi Center. Chandler, a versatile wing player, came back to Denver last spring after playing in China but appeared in eight games before being sidelined by pain in his left hip. He had surgery to repair a labral tear on April 30 and spent the offseason regaining his strength and mobility. After returning in time for Denver’s season-opener, Chandler played in only four games before realizing that his hip needed more time to heal. “It’s tough because you want to do a lot of things your mind tells you to do but your body can’t,” he said after a light workout Saturday. “You just want to go out and play good for the team, for yourself, for the fans. “People are asking you all the time, ‘What’s wrong? Why aren’t you playing?’ People on the outside really don’t know what’s going on, so people kind of criticize. That’s part of the game.” NBA.com

The Raptors have been linked to Lakers big man Pau Gasol, Milwaukee’s Ersan Ilyasova, and Denver’s Wilson Chandler; however, Raptors sources warn taking on a ton of long-term salary is not what they are looking for in a deal unless it’s exactly the right player. HoopsWorld

What has seemed like an eternity now has an end coming into focus. Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler, who has battled a severe hip injury for months, is plotting a Jan. 13 return. He revealed the plan after participating in a shootaround Friday morning at American Airlines Arena, hours before the Nuggets' game against the Mavericks. It was his first team-oriented drill in a while since being shut down in November. "I'm very excited," Chandler said. "The first time, I was excited to play, but I was kind of weak and just wasn't ready. This time around, I feel really strong and confident about it." Denver Post

I’m hearing the Warriors do like Wilson Chandler but don’t believe he is worth the No. 7 pick so that deal is unlikely to happen. The Nuggets would have to take back Andris Biedrins or Richard Jefferson to make it worthwhile for the Warriors. However, if the Warriors trade down a bit, maybe to 12 or 14, that Chandler deal may be in play. That could be a high enough jump for Denver (#20) and the Warriors could still get someone they like at No. 20 – whether Terrence Jones, Quincy Miller, Moe Harkless or even Festus Ezeli Contra Costa Times
