Before the mid-season trade deadline, the Sixers made sure to get rid of 31-year-old Chandler along with Muscala and Shamet to the Clippers franchise as part of the blockbuster Tobias Harris trade.

After averaging as high 15.6 ppg just a couple of years ago with the Nuggets, Wilson's scoring numbers plummeted to new lows during his time with the Sixers. In the 36 games he played (32 of which he started) during Philly's 2018-19 campaign, Chandler averaged 6.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.0 assist per game. These are certainly not the numbers one expects from a power forward getting over 26 minutes of court-time almost every game.

Clearly, the 11-year-veteran had been going through his worst scoring runs lately, something that was effected in part by quad injuries that nagged him intermittently throughout the season. At the age of 32, the injuries have hampered his ability to move and make solid plays.
