ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted out the news of Chandler’s suspension and a formal announcement to come from the league letter. Chandler was believed to be a fill-in for KD who will likely miss all of this season due to tearing his Achilles in the NBA Finals.

Looks like the Nets need another forward for some time, enter Carmelo Anthony? We have seen and heard all the details around Melo. He is ready to play, evident by gym workouts that make their way to social media. He cleared the air of the rumors surrounding him in a tell-all interview with Steven A. Smith on ESPN First Take. So what’s the hold-up? No one knows but looks like the Nets are to the rescue.
Frank Isola of The Athletic reports the new Nets are pushing for Melo to be added to the roster after a recent workout with the Nets. Just so happen Chandler is getting some days off involuntarily.
