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.
I wanna thank the Toronto raptors and the fans for all the love and support.....now I'm off to BROOKLYN!!— Alan Anderson (@ASqared06) July 26, 2013
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.
