Chandler is rolling the dice by going to China

Wilson Chandler does not view himself as a trail blazer or trendsetter. His decision to sign overseas was sparked solely by a desire to play basketball, something that won’t occur in the NBA until at least mid-October.

Chandler was a restricted free agent with the Nuggets, meaning his status was more tenuous than most. Under the old collective bargaining agreement, the Nuggets had the right of first refusal to retain him, but he likely would have drawn offers from clubs interested in a talented and improving swingman.
