Nets’ Alan Anderson Heading to Free Agency

Brooklyn Nets guard Alan Anderson has a $1.33 million player option for next season, but after his strong postseason performance, Anderson will opt out and become a free agent:

Anderson had a solid but not spectacular regular season in Brooklyn, averaging 7.4 points and 2.8 rebounds while shooting 44.3 percent overall and 34.8 percent from three. But the 32-year-old really stood out in the Nets’ first-round series loss against the Atlanta Hawks.

While Anderson struggled to the tune of 2-of-10 shooting in Game 6, he still managed to average 11.0 points and 3.5 rebounds while shooting a scorching hot 61.0 percent overall and 62.5 percent from three. So before that rough final game, he was up over 70 percent from the field.

Anderson is nothing more than a veteran journeyman, but he’s a nice player to have on your bench for a little extra scoring punch. The guard would like to stay with the Nets, but he’s looking forward to free agency:

Anderson should certainly be able to snare a contract larger than the $1.33 million he was due to earn next season, so this is a good move for him.
