The Brooklyn Nets general manager Billy King officially announced on Tuesday that they have signed free agent swingman Alan Anderson. Terms of the deal were not released, but it has been reported to be a two-year guaranteed deal at the veteran minimum with the second year being a player option.

“We are pleased to add Alan to our roster, “ said King said in a statement. “He is a versatile player who will add flexibility to our rotation.”

Anderson, 31 in October, probably could have gotten more money and more playing time with another team, but signed with Brooklyn for a shot at a championship. He might not even be apart of the regular rotation as he is behind Paul Pierce and Andrei Kirilenko at the three and Joe Johnson and Jason Terry at the two.

During his career, Anderson has a shooting percentage of 39.5 percent and 34.9 percent behind the arc while averaging 15.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per 36 minutes. Last season he had a career high in points per 36 minutes at 16.7 although his shooting percentage was a career low.
