The Brooklyn Nets had made Alan Anderson a priority. Nevertheless, the small forward/shooting guard preferred to leave the Nets to join the Washington Wizards by signing a $4 million dollar contract over one year.

It was actually the contract reserved for David West but since he joined San Antonio Spurs, the franchise turned to its plan B. Alan Anderson, now 32 years old, averaged 7.4 points and shot 44.3 percent from the field in 23.6 minutes per game last season.

By now we all know that that the deal will not be official until Thursday, but nevertheless, agent Mark Bartelstein did confirm it on Tuesday to The Associated Press.

Alan Anderson, saw this as a great opportunity for his career with the NBA, and especially since rumours were spreading that for most of the teams he would be a great bench addition.

You can say that Anderson had one of his best season last year with an average of 7.4 points and 2.8 rebounds, shooting a career high of 44.3 percent overall and yes, his shooting was on point against the Atlanta Hawks with 62.5% overall, not to mention being one of the Nets top three point shooters with 34.8% in a regular season.

It’s not a mystery that they want to integrate Rondae Hollis-Jefferson into Anderson’s role, and this could also have been a motivation for Anderson’s decision.
