Brooklyn Nets shooting guard Alan Anderson will be declining his player option for next season to become a free agent on the market. With that being said, this can give the San Antonio Spurs an option to try to go after the 32-year-old veteran from Minnesota.
This past season Anderson made 34.8 percent at the three line and about 43.9 at the corner. That displays a lot, especially since the Spurs are an excellent team when it comes to shooting threes. The Spurs can use another shooter that can come of screens to nail the shot in any given time of the game.
After coming off ankle surgery this year, Anderson should be back on the court next month and will continue to improve his game, in order to be picked up by a team. If the Spurs happen to pick him up, he can deliver that excellent shooting, as he did with the Nets, and possible sign a one to two year contract, depending on the circumstances. Overall, Anderson should definitely be a good pick and a player that can fit well with the Spurs style of play.
