Wilson Chandler's Agent Talking With Denver Nuggets About Eventual NBA Return

The agent for former NBA forward Wilson Chandler, Chris Luchey, recently spoke to HoopsWorld.com about his client's return to the NBA and noted that the he has had discussions with Denver Nuggets general manager Masai Ujiri about signing a long-term contract with the team in the near future. Chandler has been playing overseas with Xiniang Flying Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association since signing a non-opt out contract with the team during the NBA lockout, but will be given permission to pursue a contract with an NBA team once his team has been eliminated from playoff contention. The Chinese Basketball Association's regular season ends on February 15th, while the post season season ends on March 28th, so at some point in the next two and a half months Chandler will be talking with NBA teams. Here is what his agent had to say to Hoops World:

"We speak to Masai quite often, in great detail about the future of the team and about a potential extension with them. One day at a time is all we're doing."

Chandler will be a restricted free agent upon his return to the NBA, and will join a pool of other overseas NBA players lacking opt-out clauses like J.R. Smith, Kenyon Martin, Aaron Brooks, Patty Mills and Sonny Weems.
