In March 2012, Alan Anderson was playing in the D-League. Undrafted, he had played sparingly for Charlotte for a couple years. But by 2012, he was 29 and hadn’t played in the NBA in more than four years.
His NBA career certainly seemed over.
Yet, the Raptors gave him a chance, and he capitalized. The Nets signed him to a two-year minimum contract with a player option last summer.
Now, it’s practically a certainty Anderson will remain in the NBA.
Chris Haynes of CSN Northwest:
Anderson is a decent role player. He’s unafraid to shoot and has range to the perimeter, though he’s not a special 3-point shooter. He defends well enough, too. Brooklyn would seemingly have interest in re-signing him.
At 31, there’s only a slight chance someone offers him a deal beyond the one-year minimum he had remaining on his Nets contract. But he probably won’t do worse than that, so why not take a shot?
