The Philadelphia 76ers acquired small forward Wilson Chandler from the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday and the plan is to keep him for this upcoming season, according to a report from NBA.com.
Chandler will earn $12.8 million in 2018-19 and become a unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2019.
The Sixers could immediately re-route newly acquired @wilsonchandler in any potential, uh, trade, b/c his salary is going into the team’s available cap space. But the plan is for Philly to keep him, per league sources; his two-way play when healthy is viewed as a needed asset.
