After Avery Bradley, Trevor Ariza, Willie Cauley-Stein and Davis Bertans, Brooklyn Nets forward Wilson Chandler has also informed his team that he is opting out of playing in Orlando.

Chandler cited spending more time with his family as the primary reason for sitting out.

“As difficult as it will be to not be with my teammates, the health and well-being of my family has to come first,” Chandler told ESPN. “Thank you to the Nets organization for understanding and supporting me in this decision, and I will be watching and rooting for our team in Orlando.”

That announcement might be good news for Latvian forward Rodions Kurucs who may get some of Chandler’s minutes, even if the Nets have already added 26-yeard old forward Justin Anderson in the open spot left by Chandler.
