Brooklyn Nets Re-Sign Alan Anderson

With Paul Pierce headed to the Washington Wizards in a move I still don’t quite understand, the Brooklyn Nets made a wise move for a key contributor to the team last season.  Below is the official press release from the organization.

“The Brooklyn Nets have re-signed guard Alan Anderson to a multi-year contract, General Manager Billy King announced today.  Per team policy, details of the contract were not disclosed.


“Alan’s versatility was a big part of our success last season,” said King.  “We look forward to Alan’s continued leadership on and off the court this season.”


Last season, Anderson set single-season career highs for games played (78), games started (26) and minutes played (1,773), while averaging 7.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 22.7 minutes per game. He shot .400 (194-485) from the field and .339 (84-248) from three-point range. Anderson scored in double figures 26 times, including a season-high 26 points in a season-high 46 minutes on December 20 at Philadelphia.  He made his first career playoff appearance with Brooklyn this season, appearing in 12 games (two starts) versus Toronto and Miami, averaging 5.9 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 21.8 minutes per game.


The Michigan State product recently completed his fifth NBA season and first season with the Nets.  In 213 career games, Anderson holds NBA averages of 8.1 points and 2.2 rebounds in 21.4 minutes per game.  Anderson, who initially signed with Brooklyn on July 30, 2013, went undrafted in the 2005 NBA Draft.”
