Brooklyn Nets re-sign Alan Anderson

It hasn’t been the greatest offseason for the Brooklyn Nets.

Over the last few years, the Nets have really raised expectations. First they sent big man Derrick Favors to the Utah Jazz in a deal that brought back All-Star point guard Deron Williams. Then, they dealt for another All-Star in Atlanta Hawks’ swingman Joe Johnson. After trying to acquire center Dwight Howard from the Orlando Magic, only to see him dealt to the Los Angeles Lakers (and then he signed with the Houston Rockets), the Nets traded for a couple of future Hall-of-Famers, acquiring swingman Paul Pierce and big man Kevin Garnett (and guard Jason Terry) from the Boston Celtics.

The Nets clear want to continue to improve, but so far this offseason they have lost Pierce to the Washington Wizards, guard Shaun Livingston to the Golden State Warriors and seem poised to lose big man Andray Blatche as well.

On Monday, they received some good news when they reached a deal with forward Alan Anderson.

Anderson’s agency, Priority Sports, announced the deal and Tim Bontemps of The New York Post provided the details.

Anderson averaged 7.2 points, 2.2  rebounds and 1.0 assists per game while shooting 40.0% from the field, 33.9% from beyond the arc and 78.0% from the free throw line. In the postseason, he put up 5.9 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game while shooting 40.3% from the field, 29.0% from beyond the arc and 82.4% from the charity stripe.
