    Nugs have been rocked by injuries lately too, resigning him is pretty crucial at this point.

    Too bad for us.

    Default Could Chandler still be in the running?

    One source close to the situation, meanwhile, says restricted free-agent swingman Wilson Chandler is giving legit consideration to negotiating a mere one-year, rest-of-the-season contract when he returns from China to the Nuggets in March. The idea there is that Chandler, with perhaps only a couple of months left in the Nuggets' season at that point, might prefer to play out that short span on an expiring deal because he could then become an unrestricted free agent in July.

    I don't see Denver going through with a one year contract though. But if he did become a UFA, Toronto would have the cap space to make a serious offer.

    I think this is in the best interest of Chandler and possibly Denver. They are going to have some holes in their roster if they resign him and they will be over the salary cap. Plus next summer they will be looking at a Lawson extension.

    I have to question why Denver would ever agree to a 1-year deal with Chandler. Regardless what his future with the club is, they would be much better served not signing him and forcing him to remain a RFA into the offseason. They could then sign him or do a S&T, to at least get something back for him, which they wouldn't get if he leaves after this season as an UFA.

    They might not want him long term due to financial reasons - especially with the new CBA coming.

    They could still do a sign and trade with teams. The financial incentive is gone but he would at least have options of going to a team over the salary cap and getting more than MLE while Denver can get something in return.

    Chandler's Zhejiang Lions team starts a five-game playoff series next Thursday, but sources told ESPN.com that Chandler received the blessing of Lions management to come back to the NBA as soon as he helped the team clinch a playoff spot.

    Chandler, though, needs the Chinese Basketball Association to issue his FIBA letter of clearance before he can resume his NBA career. And it is not yet known whether Chinese authorities are prepared to grant Chandler that clearance or insist that he has to wait until the Lions' season is over -- as per the terms all NBA players who signed in China during the lockout had to accept -- before signing with his next team.
    What is clear is that Lions officials are prepared to let Chandler come home. Sources told ESPN.com that Zhejiang management essentially promised a drifting Chandler that he'd be granted permission to skip the playoffs as long as he made sure the team didn't miss them. In the Lions' regular-season finale against the Beijing Ducks, Chandler responded with 41 points and 18 rebounds -- 25 of those points coming in the first quarter -- in a 114-94 rout.

    "We prefer to let [Chandler] make the decision," Lions general manager Ye Xiangyu was
