This week Denver Broncos’ receiver Emmanuel Sanders made headlines for all the wrong reasons with a messy divorce which has placed an apparent day-off from practice last November into question. Sanders allegedly took time off from practice for the birth of his daughter; however, recent court documents from his messy divorce suggest that Sanders took time off from work for a chance to go “partying.” Sanders estranged wife, Gabriella Waheed, has filed court documents in connection with her divorce, alleging that Sanders lied to the Denver Broncos about his whereabouts during the birth of his daughter last season. Waheed, alleges that Sanders lied to go “partying”. Court documents also claim infidelity and lavish spending during several of his alleged flings.
In other sports, as the NBA’s trade deadline fast approaches, the Denver Nuggets and the Houston Rockets could be in agreement soon in a trade that could send small forward Wilson Chandler to the Houston Rockets as Danilo Gallinari has been Denver’s go to guy in that position, making Chandler dispensable. Chandler has been with the Nuggets since 2011 (with a short stint in China’s Basketball League during the 2012 NBA lockout) when he was sent to Denver as part of the blockbuster deal which sent small forward Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks. Chandler hasn’t produced the same successes he had in New York but has still been a key part of the Nuggets until he injured his hip which sidelined him until this season. Chandler’s injury meant more time for Gallinari which has led to Chandler’s request for a trade.
