i think that draft thing is blown out of proportion and can be smoothed over, portland would be nuts to not re-sign him though and i think they'll keep him.

The Net's didn't break the story, the media was already on it by the time they did their test.

Following Wilson Chandler's visit to Toronto yesterday, a lot of misinformation on the 24-year-old's options has been floating around the web. Because of Chandler's unique situation, returning from a season in China as a restricted NBA free agent, there's some confusion about where he can sign, and for how much. So let me run through Chandler's situation as I see it....

* Typically, restricted free agents can sign offer sheets with opposing teams, which the free agent's team then has three days to match. In this case, the Nuggets still hold Chandler's rights, so they'd have the option of matching any offer sheet he signs elsewhere.

* To become a restricted free agent, Chandler had to be extended a qualifying offer by Denver. Generally, the deadline to accept that one-year deal is March 1st. Assuming the Nuggets didn't move that deadline up, Chandler should be able to accept that qualifying offer (worth $3.1MM, pro-rated) and be eligible for unrestricted free agency after the season, if he doesn't get a long-term offer he likes. He could also sit out the rest of the season and become a restricted free agent again in the summer, when teams have more financial flexibility.

* Restricted free agents aren't permitted to sign offer sheets after March 1st, according to CBA expert Larry Coon, so if Chandler intends to sign an offer sheet with the Raptors or any other team, he'll have to do so within the next few days.

* ESPN.com's Marc Stein, Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld, and SI.com's Sam Amick are among those writing that the Raptors have cap space (about $4.3MM) to put toward an offer for Chandler. It had previously been thought that the Raptors had used their mid-level exception and bi-annual exception to sign Aaron Gray and Gary Forbes respectively. If the team has available cap space, however, it must have renounced its $16MM in cap holds, signed Forbes using cap space, and signed Gray using its $2.5MM room exception for teams under the cap. Still, a contract starting at $4.3MM won't be enough to scare off the Nuggets, so if the Raptors are serious about Chandler, they could try to make a trade that clears more cap space, as Kyler reports.

* If Chandler accepted his qualifying offer from the Nuggets and became an unrestricted free agent this summer, the Raptors and a number of other teams would have the flexibility to make him a much larger offer than they can right now. So it makes sense that agent Chris Luchey suggested to Amick that GM Masai Ujiri and the Nuggets are more interested in a long-term contract than a rest-of-season deal. Denver is in a good position to outbid rival suitors at this point, but bidding could get more competitive this summer.

I was talking to this guy i work with tonight. He says he knows someone that works for the Raptors and he heard that one player they want to target is Aaron Brooks, along with Wilson Chandler. Not sure if i buy this one, but isn't he a FA this summer?

I hope they don't pursue Brooks.

I don't care for undersized, shoot-first PG's, who play no D and sulk when things don't go their way.

I liked Brooks' game, before he went to China, but he's more of a score-first PG - which I don't mind, but I wonder with Bargnani's emergence, if the team is going to want to go with a more "traditional" pass-first PG (which makes me think that they could still hold on to Calderon).

Also, I think that Phoenix still owns his rights, and regardless of what happens to Nash (I doubt he'll return to PHX) that Phoenix will want to hold on to Brooks' rights - I think he's restricted - and it would take a massive offer for the Suns not to match.

One thing I will say is that Brooks is a very good shooter and now that he's 27, maybe a little more mature and under Casey he might be a little more reserved as a shooter and be a solid #2 scorer. A pecking order of Bargnani-Brooks-Chandler/Derozan in the starting lineup would be impressive. I'm not sure how great his D is though.

Brooks is a horrible player for this team. He's a chucker and is undersized. I know Raptor fans here would not like this type of player.
