Wilson Chandler Married, Wife, Family, College
Now playing for the Brooklyn Nets, Wilson Chandler is in his 11th season as a professional NBA player. The athlete has succeeded with every team that he stepped foot on the court.
Despite his career longevity and recognition by almost everyone that follows the NBA, not everything about Wilson is out there. The athlete has always kept his love life a secret and out of the reach of media.
Is Wilson Dating?
Wilson Chandler is very secretive when it comes to his dating life. Despite being at the top of the basketball world and living the lavish life of a high-earning player, Wilson has never really let the world know about his girlfriend.
But, it doesn't imply that he is single. Yes, Wilson is dating his significant other. Even though the player has never mentioned her name, some other sources confirm her identity.
Wilson’s girlfriend’s name is Arika Hall, and she has been confirmed by authentic sources such as the Twitter account of Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children. The hospital posted a thank you note to Arika when she visited them and even made some donations in December 2016
However, other than her name, not much else is known about Arika or her state of relationship with Wilson. Unless Wilson publicly acknowledges his involvement with his fiancee, it is hard to speculate his plans on getting married and turning Erika to his "wife."

Despite his uncertain future with Arika, it is known that Wilson has two children with her. He has a daughter and a son named Jaya and Will, respectively. But, their dates of birth are not disclosed yet.

The most influential person in Wilson’s life was his grandmother. Olivia Chandler was the person behind Wilson’s success and hard-working mentality. She raised him in the right way, despite the bad surroundings in Benton Harbor, and taught him to be a good, respectful person.
With her support, Wilson was successful in becoming a world-class basketball player, and get respect from everyone around him.
