Free agent forward Chandler officially signed by Nets

Wilson Chandler appeared in 36 games with the 76ers last season and another 15 with the Clippers.

The Brooklyn Nets have officially signed small forward Wilson Chandler, the team announced in a news release.

The deal is for one year at the veteran’s minimum, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reported.

Chandler, 32, finished this past season with the Los Angeles Clippers, appearing in 15 games. He spent 36 games with the Philadelphia 76ers before that, compiling averages of 6.7 points and 4.7 rebounds.

As Haynes noted, Chandler could serve as a nice veteran complementary piece next to All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving while the team waits for Kevin Durant to debut following a rupture Achilles tendon.

Chandler can also help replace the losses of former Nets forwards DeMarre Carroll (San Antonio Spurs) and Jared Dudley (Los Angeles Lakers) in free agency.
