In a conversation with ESPN, Chender did not hide that the coronavirus is one of the biggest reasons why he will not go to Orlando. The basketball player also indicated that this time would be used to be more with the family.
“It will be difficult not to be with my teammates, but the well-being and health of my family comes first,” the basketball player based his decision. “Thanks to the Nets team, which is very understanding. I’ll watch the games and fan the team matches in Orlando.”
Chandler joined the Brooklyn Club in July last year, but in August received a disqualification for 25 games for the use of illicit substances.
Shortly after Chendler’s decision, the team announced that Justin Anderson, who had played in the NBA Development League last season, would take his place in Orlando instead of basketball, but he had already played 219 regular championship matches in his career in the NBA. Significantly, during his college years, the basketball player played on the same team as the current “Nets” player Joe Harris.
With Chendler on the sidelines, there are only two players in the Nets team – Rodion Kuruch and Taurine Prince, who are the first option in this position throughout the season, so that the Prince’s performance in the last games before the break was not very convincing. Kuruch and Wilson can also play in the position of a light striker, in front of which there is an even more pronounced favorite – long-distance specialist Harris, a member of the US national team in the World Cup in China in basketball.
Chandler averaged 5.9 points in 35 games this season and won 4.1 rebounds.
Dāvis Bertāns was the first NBA basketball player to announce that he would not go to Orlando. Trevor Ariza of Portland Trail Blazers, as well as Eiver Bradley (Lakers of Los Angeles) and Villlay Clay-Stein (Dallas Mavericks), announced similar intentions shortly afterwards.
The teams will arrive in Orlando on July 7, but then training camps are planned, after which the start of the season is planned for July 30.
