WEDNESDAY, 4:37pm: Anderson’s deal is official, the team announced via press release.
“Alan’s versatility was a big part of our success last season,” Nets GM Billy King said. “We look forward to Alan’s continued leadership on and off the court this season.”
TUESDAY, 6:30pm: The exact terms of the deal are two-years, $2.6MM, with a player option for 2015/16, tweets Michael Scotto of Sheridan Hoops. Those figures suggest the team is using its Non-Bird rights on Anderson, preserving its taxpayer’s mid-level exception for Bojan Bogdanovic.
5:58 pm: The Nets have reached an agreement to re-sign swingman Alan Anderson. The news was first announced by Anderson’s agent, Mark Bartlestein and his Priority Sports Agency (hat tip to Tim Bontemps of The New York Post). The deal is worth a little less than $3MM over two years, and the second year is a player option, tweets Bontemps.
Anderson started a career-high 26 games this past season and averaged 7.2 PPG, 2.2 RPG, and 1.0 APG in 22.7 minutes per contest.His slash line was .400/.339/.780.
The 31 year-old signed a two-year deal with Brooklyn as a free agent last summer, coming over from the Raptors where he appeared in 65 games and scored a career-high 10.7 PPG, but with a shooting percentage of just 38.3%. Anderson chose to opt out of the second year of his deal with the Nets with the hopes of scoring a raise over the $1.06MM he was originally scheduled to make.
