The Zhejiang Guangsha Lions announced today Wilson Chandler will join the team and he's currently waiting for his flight to China. According to domestic media sources, Guangsha will also sign Serbian center Miroslav Raduljica.

Puccio: “I think you definitely see Jamal Crawford come back next year. I’m very confident that he’ll be back, and also Tyler Johnson as well after what he did in the Orlando bubble. We know Sean Marks likes him a lot after the contract that he threw at him when he was in Miami. I think, with Chandler, it’s kind of a coin flip. I personally don’t think that he’s coming back, but we’ll have to see on that front.”
Chris Haynes: Free agent forward Wilson Chandler has reached an agreement with the Brooklyn Nets, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.
Michael Scotto: The Brooklyn Nets and free agent forward Wilson Chandler have agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million deal, a league source told @The Athletic. First reported by Yahoo.
Denver can't seem to find a groove. Injuries have contributed; we won't know what this team is until Paul Millsap returns. But Wilson Chandler's drop-off has chipped away at their depth and lineup flexibility. After years of hip issues, Chandler looks like he aged five years over one summer (at least before he broke out a bit against the Knicks on Thursday). Chandler is probably best now as a small-ball power forward, but Denver is already crowded at that position. Chandler has a $12.8 million player option for next season, and what he does with it will have a huge impact on Denver's cap-and-tax situation. Chandler is at the age where he might opt out to secure more long-term money, but if he keeps playing like this, he may not find a long-term deal to his liking.

With a first-round rematch between their teams set, Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic said there are no hard feelings remaining from the heated rivalry that he developed with LA Clippers forward Marcus Morris Sr. during last season’s playoff series. According to Doncic, Morris apologized to him during a game earlier this season about stepping on the back of Doncic’s left ankle in Game 5, a controversial play that the Mavs considered dirty with their star playing on a sprained ankle.
“He’s a hell of a player, hell of a defender,” said Doncic, who averaged 31 points, 9.8 rebounds and 8.7 assists per game in last season’s series during his first NBA postseason. “Trash talk is always there, and if it’s not, you’re not really competing. It’s going to be great.”

Michael Scotto: LeBron James on Stephen Curry: “Everybody counted him out this year. Everybody said now that Klay (Thompson) is hurt, can Steph lead a team on his own? What’s he going to be able to do? Can he carry a team into the postseason? Can he keep a team afloat? He’s done that and more.”
