Alan Anderson agrees to two-year deal with the Nets

By Royce Young | NBA writer

As if they haven't already spent enough, the Nets are spending a little more.

Per Ken Berger of CBSSports.com, Alan Anderson has signed a two-year deal with the Nets, according to his agent Mark Bartelstein.

The second season is a player option.

The Nets have been extremely busy this offseason, adding Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Jason Terry, Andrei Kirilenko, Shaun Livingston and re-signing Andray Blatche. Because of it, the Nets are looking at something like an $80 million luxury tax bill and a total salary of close to $102 million, roughly $40 million over the salary cap.

But they had a roster spot open, so why not use it? I mean, what's a couple more million?

They bring in Anderson, a very solid guard that adds depth behind Joe Johnson and Terry. Anderson is a good wing defender, can shoot the 3 and slashes well to the bucket.

Anderson, 30, spent last season with the Raptors and averaged 10.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 65 games.
