Though reports speculated that the Chinese Basketball Association was not going to grant Denver Nuggets restricted free agent Wilson Chandler a letter of return to the NBA, it now appears that that will be a moot point. Chandler's CBA team, one that allowed him to sit out the playoffs, has been eliminated from the postseason, reports Hoops World's Alex Kennedy.

Chandler is still deciding between the Nuggets or to sign with another team, possibly the Toronto Raptors. However, since he is a restricted free agent, Wilson could see the Nuggets match any offer sheet he signs. If Chandler does not sign a deal with another team before March 1, he can really only sign with the Nuggets.
