Chandler averaged 5.9 PPG and 4.1 RPG for the Nets this season, mostly coming off the bench.
Anderson played 3 games with Brooklyn last January when he signed a 10-day contract.
But he was waived after and continued playing for the G-League for the Raptors 905 and eventually the Long Island Nets.
The 21st pick of the 2015 NBA Draft now has a chance to prove his worth once again for the Nets.
Brooklyn is in the thick of the playoff race with a 30-34 record, good for 7th in the Eastern Conference.
