    Knicks forward Wilson Chandler was busted on a pot possession charge after cops pulled him over last night in Queens, police said.

    Chandler, who turned 23 last week, was carrying what was described as a "small amount" of marijuana when cops pulled over the 2010 Mercedes-Benz he was riding in near 94th Avenue and 213th Street in Queens at 11:30 p.m., police said.

    Cops decided to search Chandler after they smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle, police said. Chandler was issued a desk appearance ticket for the misdemeanor charge.

    Chandler missed the final month of the season because of a strained groin; He is scheduled to undergo a sports hernia surgery and will need six to eight weeks to recover. Chandler was drafted by the Knicks in 2007.

    He's almost getting to the untradeable level. Injured every year and now this. Forget any scenario where Chandler gets us something of value (e.g. Rubio). We might as well keep him.

    I have always said that Chandler has all the talent but is one of the dumbest players on the Knicks.

    He talks like an idiot and now proves it right here with this article.

    At this point I'd be happy if we traded him to Memphis for the 25 and 28 picks...

    LOL

    I don't think I wanna trade him on a small misdemeanor. I mean the cops just gave him a ticket and now ya wanna trade him for foodstamps.

    Chandler is like the poor mans Rudy Gay.

    You wouldn't trade Chandler for Bledsoe (25) and Ebanks (28)? Sounds more than fair to me...

    It's not even about the weed thing...Chandler is expendable. We need players for next year, with those picks we could get two players for about the same money we'll be paying Chandler next year, while also possibly filling a positional need or two...

    It was for "Medicinal" purposes!

    +1 For Wilson's rep. Can't blame a player for trying to heal up and get back on the court.

    ...and you guys thought he was passive. He was HIGH!

    oh and...

    note to Wilson: You're a minority, full of tats, driving around Queens in a Benz.

    Here in NYC... we call that a target. You fit the profile! Next time, wear your seat-belt, obey all laws, drive the speed limit and finally, stash your sh*t better! No smoking until you get indoors.

    or take a limo or OJ. That way the driver is liable.

    I think this is the most critical time in the History of our franchise, with Wilson Chandler representing one of the major selling points of Walsh and Dantoni, this may not be a big deal, but it certainley doesnt help matters.


    The weed charge alone isnt much, but it plus the injuries hurts the sales pitch!

    Wilson for Memphis' picks then Walker + and the earliest of the picks for Rubio!

    This little incident doesn't hurt his stock in the least. I do agree that we need to try and get a pick or package him for something... anything. We're going to need a bunch of players since we only have about 5 under contract for next season.

    Depending on what free agents we sign, we may have to trade him anyway.
