Denver Nuggets free agent Wilson Chandler is planning on playing in China during the 2011-12 season, a report said Monday, where he will be reunited with his former NBA coach Jim Cleamons.

ESPN sports said that the 24-year-old Chandler will suit up for Zhejiang Guangsha of the Chinese Basketball Association, as the NBA lockout drags on.

Earlier this month, Chinese basketball officials said free-agent NBA players would be welcome if the league's stoppage continues, but they would be forced to play an entire season in China.
