Raptors ESPN: Raptors in pursuit of Chandler

Quote:
"I really think I'm going to be on a new team come training camp," Chandler told ESPN.com in a telephone interview Wednesday night. "I'm really taking a hard look at all of my options, trying to see what best suits me."

Chandler's doubts about the Mavericks' willingness to re-sign him to a lucrative long-term deal will be welcome news for organizations throughout the league. Chandler and Denver center Nene rank as the two most coveted unrestricted free agents in the 2011 class, but the overwhelming sentiment in many front offices has been that Chandler's return to Dallas was essentially a done deal after the 7-footer's role in helping the Mavericks win their first championship.

Chandler, though, insisted Wednesday that such assumptions are a misnomer and admitted for the first time that he's disappointed by the club's decision not to offer him a contract extension after he was widely credited -- most notably by Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki -- for changing the team's defensive culture after three first-round exits in the previous four years.

Chandler maintains that staying in Dallas has been his first choice, but he expressed disappointment that the communication between the sides was minimal from the end of the NBA Finals in mid-June and the June 30 deadline for extensions. NBA front office sources list New Jersey, Golden State, Houston and Toronto as the teams chasing Chandler hardest.

Less is more. More or less. But mostly less. Or should that be more?

i agree. and a 3yr contract wouldn't be bad, i still say he'd rather go to a contender. and if not a contender, he'd likely end up in jersey or ny.

If that Bargnani trade were true......6-7 imo.

Bayless
Derozan
Hamilton
Davis
Chandler


Not a crap load of offense, but we'd still have Barbosa, Calderon, Johnson, Amir off the bench.

Anyway, i don't think that it has a snowball's chance at happening, but it's nice to dream.

Chandler clearly expects huge payday. I was told today that the type of $ figures his camp threw out there today were through the roof.

Betcha he wants 5yrs/60Mil at least. Which makes it impossible for us to get him.

i think it's more important to have a system and the right personnel enforcing it. we need a player like TC for our young guys and future picks.

Exactly, this year is supposed to be loaded, get picks, and plug holes next year. As much as i want to be in the playoffs this year, its probably not going to happen and finishing 10th is the worst thing possible. one more bad year, and realistically i think we can start competing next season with a better FA pool as well i believe

Would you give up your chances at a superstar type talent for a chance to overpay a semi mediocre big man?
