Kleiza spent the entire season in Greece tho. Chandler will be back to join the Nuggets at the end of the 2011-2012 NBA season.
Risky move for Chandler.
But its a bonehead move for Earl Clark because he doesnt have any Qualifying Offer with Orlando to come back to. Heck, Orlando replaced him with Justin Harper for the backup 4/3 positions. When the season ends he'll be without a team, and most NBA & D-League teams will already be set. Considering hes a bust, he should've just waited this out and tried to make a team via training camp.
