what do you think they hornets need out of their sf?
A forward who is interchangeable defensively at the 3 & 4 positions. A forward who is respectable from the corner-3, can get to the rim and finish, who also draws fouls, getting to the free throw line and makes them at a good rate.
Chandler (or Dub-C for VOR) played a lot at the PF position in New York as a small-ball four. While he wasn't great by any means, he still played it respectively and well enough.
Chandler has great size and athleticism that could make him one of the best on-ball wing defenders in the NBA.
“I think he’s an athletic, ahead-of-the-curve defender,” Karl told Adrian Dater of the Denver Post. “He played (a lot) for New York basically because he was one of their best defenders, if not their best defender. The addition of Andre and him gives us an opportunity to move toward being a really good defensive team. He can guard big men, little men, all over the court.” Read more at http://www.hoopsworld.com/nba-am-wilson-chandler-off-trading-block/#RM40dYzMxTqCTRoB.99
As of January 7th, I should go back and re-calculate his percentages up to now, Chandler has made 42% of his corner-3 attempts the last three seasons.
Also, as of January 7th, Chandler has made 67% of attempts in the restricted area in that same time period. LINK
Chandler does not draw fouls, though. That's certainly a detriment to his game. The Hornets are the third worst team at getting to the line per game as is. So, he does not help that cause at all.
