    PG Calderon vs PG Ty Lawson is a salary difference of about 7.2million. Chandler could make up that difference

    Lawson is the PG of the present and future in Denver.

    Although if Denver is willing to give up Lawson and Chandler for him, awesome!

    (not going to happen though).

    btw, is it possible that Chandler signs with Denver for the remainder of this season and becomes an unrestricted free agent in the summer?

    Lets be realist. Its been reported that BC wanted go to after him and than BC says on live TV that he was interested in the WC. Now two weeks later his just hanging out in Toronto with his agent. In a hotel that's close to the ACC. What are they going to say when his at the game. Visiting friend and familly? How many American born player have have family in Canada never less Toronto? The only friend would be Forbes since they played on the same team last year. Its all-star weekend shouldn't you be trying to get a hotel in Orlando?

    Chandler was in Denver on Monday in the hopes of working out a contract..and he said that he had hoped to work out a contract within the next week. I'm assuming that he's in Toronto to get a feel for the city and to get schmoozed by Colangelo before rejecting any real deal. Unless the Raptors offer him a boatload of money up front, Denver is going to match it.

    What can we really offer him to even give Denver a second thought on signing him, if all we have is 4.5 mil we are just wasting his time.

    If Chandler wants to come to Toronto to start at SF, instead of backing-up Denver's new franchise player - Gallinari - it could very well be in all three stakeholders' best interest to do a S&T now.

    Denver - a S&T now is better than a 1/2 year deal after which WC walks for nothing

    Toronto - get WC for a relatively cheap contract & whatever asset(s) goes to Denver in the S&T

    WC - gets a multi-year deal from a team on which he is promised the starting SF role, rather than waste half a season being a backup in Denver with an uncertain future

    The thing is he seems willing to sign long term in Denver if they give him the contract he wants, does not seem like a guy looking to jump ship for more playing time.

    In that case, I assume it's possible that he is talking to teams about next year to see if he should sign a long term contract now with Denver or just for this season.

    There it is:


    Sam Amick @sam_amick
    Wilson Chandler is visiting Toronto to discuss a possible pairing with the Raptors, according to his agent, Chris Luchey.
    Sam Amick @sam_amick
    Chandler is still talking to Denver about a deal, but exploring other options as well. Another spike to someone's roster coming.

    I don't doubt that he'd love to stay in Denver, play lots and get a big fat contract. I just wonder if Denver feels the same way, considering Gallinari has cemented himself as the starting SF for the long-term future. Would Denver be able to justify handing out a fat multi-year contract for a backup, as easily as Toronto (or other teams) would be for WC as a starting SF? I just get the feeling that Denver doesn't want to shell out the big bucks WC wants, so Denver's next best option is a S&T. Hopefully, for Raptors fans, anyway!
