The Denver Nuggets have reached a multiyear contract agreement with restricted free agent F Wilson Chandler, Nuggets executive vice president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri announced today.

"It is great to have Wilson back on our roster,” Ujiri said. “It was a very unique situation signing a talented free agent in the middle of the season, and we worked extremely hard to find an agreement that was best for everyone. Wilson will be an excellent addition for the rest of this season and for years to come."

Chandler, 6-8, 225, averaged 15.3 points and a career-high 5.7 rebounds in 72 games with Denver and the New York Knicks last season. He joined the Nuggets as part of a three-team 13-player trade that also involved the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Chandler, 24, most recently played for the Zhejiang Guangsha Lions of the Chinese Basketball Association, averaging 26.6 points and 11.6 rebounds in 32 games.

Selected 23rd overall by the Knicks in the 2007 NBA Draft, Chandler has averaged 13.9 points and 5.2 rebounds in 254 career games.

Here's how Wilson Chandler's #Nuggets contract will go: rest of this yr plus four additional seasons -- for 37 million.

Breaking: Wilson Chandler has agreed to sign with Denver, agent tells me.

And so, since the trade has gone through, it appears that both JaVale and Wilson will be available tomorrow, #Nuggets vs Dallas

I'd put it at 50-50.

Depends when he (he might have already) passes his physical.

He's been here for a month now watching games and talking with people I assume.

It's definitely plausible.

Yes!!!! Hopefully it's the 5 year, $30 mil with a team option like what was being reported.

But even if it's not that, I'm extremely happy. If we get that contract as well, it's almost too good to be true.

I'll update the OP as soon as I see anything.

Pretty sweet deal for us

Great deal.

Similar to AAA's deal.

I think AAA deserves more, which he got more, but Wilson has huge upside too. I think that was a steal.


Here is AAA's contract:

2011-12: $7,562,500.
2012-13: $7,562,500.
2013-14: $7,562,500.
2014-15: $7,562,500.
2015-16: $7,750,000 [Player Option].
2016-17: UFA



I'll post Wilson's exact contract once that becomes available.

This is indeed great news. I know I have been a little critical of the postseason chances but that was when I was starting to think Chandler was going to sit out all season. Now this changes everything. It will be exciting to see how the team finishes the season up with the additions of Wilson and Javele. Hopefully they can make a push for a first round home court series. Also hope these additions will help the Nuggets improve defensively.

I am sooooo freaking excited for this team now:

I still believe we will be a 3rd or 4th seed in the West. Originally I thought two until the injuries, and still think that's possible, but I'd say 3rd or 4th.

1 - Ty, Dre, Stone
2 - AAA, Rudy, Hamilton
3 - Gallo, Chandler, Brewer
4 - Faried, Big Al, Birdman
5 - McGee, Timo, Kosta


DEEP.

Chandler is awesome. Glad we finally signed him, now let's get him on the court ASAP!!

We are going to be great come seasons end with much fresher players than most teams. Partly because of the injuries and payers sitting out, but mostly because we play soooo many players, and they are all talented. Yes, even Birdman :mad: don't hate. :D
