Wilson Chandler Contract: Guard's New Deal Has 4 Years After Remainder Of 2012 Season

The Denver Nuggets signed Wilson Chandler to a contract that is four-plus years in length and worth $37 million, according to Sports Illustrated's Sam Amick:

The terms of this deal are not unexpected since the Nuggets would only sign Chandler to a multi-year deal. Had he signed for the remainder of the season, Chandler would have been an unrestricted free agent, leaving the Nuggets without any compensation or a chance to match any contract offer, which the team could have done this season had Chandler inked his name to an offers sheet.

Chandler is expected to be in action on Monday with JaVale McGee also making his debut.

Wilson Chandler Re-signs With Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets, after several long months, have guard Wilson Chandler back in the fold. He has agreed to sign a contract with the team on Sunday afternoon, according to his agent:

Wilson was a restricted free agent who signed with a Chinese Basketball Association team to play during the NBA lockout. He played the regular season over there and then sat out the playoffs while he worked to get clearance back to the NBA.

Once that happened near the end of February, Chandler started to look at other teams to sign an offer sheet, but he never did so before the March 1 deadline. That left him with signing with the Nuggets or sitting out and being a restricted free agent once again this summer.

When everything is announced, we should expect a long-term deal since the Nuggets didn't want to sign him for just the remainder of the season -- that would have left him an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

UPDATE: The Nuggets announced a multi-year deal.
