Some of this smells like the Hedo situation a bit to me... a guy looking for a big payday over anything else.

Don't get me wrong... I'm intrigued by Chandler... but I'm wary. I honestly don't know if he's going to end up being a significant upgrade over what we currently have (when you consider what we're going to pay him).
It's nothing like Hedo. First of all you have no idea what kind of payday he's looking for and secondly, perhaps he wants the chance to start and have an expanded role that isn't available in Denver. Lastly, Hedo was a lot older.

Sorry, but the guy is a massive upgrade over JJ. He's the same age and has a much more complete offensive game and is just as versatile and just as good a defender. And if you doubt me, go back and check out his time on the Knicks - on most nights he was the only guy playing D out there.
