The Rockets and Ryan Anderson have agreed to terms on a deal that will bring the forward to Houston, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports (via Twitter). Anderson’s pact is for four years and $80MM, the scribe adds.

Houston beat out a number of other suitors for the services of the sweet-shooting stretch four. The Kings and Wizards were among the teams vying to ink the 28-year-old, but the opportunity to play alongside James Harden in Houston, and of course, $80MM, snagged Anderson.

Anderson, a former 21st overall pick, has only played more than 66 games once in a season, but is coming off a solid year for the Pelicans. He averaged 17.0 points and 6.0 rebounds per game, to go along with a shooting line of .427/.366/.873. Anderson’s career numbers through eight NBA seasons are 13.1 PPG, 5.6 RPG and 0.9 APG.

    Doesn’t sound like the Rockets are getting Horford, so good move locking Anderson up.

  2. Z.....

    their defense is going to be pretty bad, at least as of now, though admittedly Anderson did improve in some areas on that end in the last year or so…

    Good signing. Anderson fits the Rockets gameplan of spacing and 3 pt shooting. At center, they have Capela to take over for the departing Dwight Howard.

      rockets are the only texas team that just throw away money like it’s nothing if I was the gm I could have made a trade with a certain team and receive better production than anderson

  4. These Rockets aren’t going anywhere… they will really struggle defensively and I feel bad for Weird the Beard’s teammates having to play another 82 games with him
