This offseason, New York Knick Wilson Chandler will become a free agent. New York will be making a difficult choice of bringing him back or not. To me, Wilson Chandler must be kept on the roster at all costs.

At this point in his career, Chandler is showing a lot of potential. In his fourth year in the league, he is putting up impressive averages of 16.8 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.7 assists. He meshes perfectly with New York's offense, and has become the recipient of many great passes from Raymond Felton.

With and increase in shots, he has increased his efficiency as well. He is shooting at a 46 percent clip, higher than his career field goal percentage of 45 percent.

With good anticipation, he's averaging 1.7 blocks per game.

Increase of productivity also means an increase in pay.

As of now, I personally think Chandler is worth anywhere from eight million to ten million dollars. If Brendan Haywood can make that much money playing off the bench, Chandler is well worth it.

One thing that can affect the New York Knick's decision to keep him is the thought of Carmelo Anthony possibly signing with the team.
