A Brooklyn Nets forward is reportedly facing a major NBA suspension as the 2019-20 regular season approaches.

Wilson Chandler, a 32-year-old forward who signed with Brooklyn this offseason, is reportedly facing a 25-game suspension.

ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski reports the news.

Chandler reportedly tested positive for PED use.

"Brooklyn Nets forward Wilson Chandler is facing a 25 game suspension for testing positive for PED use, league sources tell ESPN. The NBA is expected to make an announcement later today," he reports.

Chandler was one of several notable NBA players to sign with Brooklyn this summer, as the Nets notably added Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

The veteran NBA forward spent the 2018-19 season with the 76ers and Clippers.

Chandler has career averages of 12.9 points and 5.3 rebounds a game. He was expected to be a contributor off the bench for Brooklyn.
