2 year, $2.6 mil contract. 2nd year player option.

Nets starting SG. This was important for the Nets.

Starting SG? Did Joe Johnson die? Or did you mean starting SF? If so: yikes.

It's a good deal, but if he's starting for the league's most ridiculously financed team, that's bad news. Nets are in some sort of purgatory for the next two seasons, man...

He may be a big of a chucked on the offensive end, but he's a streak shooter who can hit the 3. But actually, it's his defense that his his best feature, and the Nets can use that. Good re-sign.

Alan Anderson believes he can hit every shot he can take. 1 in every 10 games he gets a hot hand. The rest of the time he is one of the worst chuckers in the league. When he touches that ball, you know it isn't going to anyone else with a Nets jersey on.

Anderson is a solid bench player to have on a reasonable deal. Most teams in the league would benefit from having him on their team. He's a well rounded veteran that plays his role well and is a high character guy.

The Nets bench is better with him then without him. The majority of these comments are asinine. He played an important role in the Nets beating TOR last year and can handle SG/SF duties. Solid signing for the Nets.

Marquis Teague. :laugh2:

Teague is terrible and shouldn't see a min of action which is why he wanted to keep Jack in the backup role behind D-Will.

Anderson won't start. It's going to be a combination of AK-47 (SF) and Mirza/Plumlee/KG at the PF. Johnson will probably slide back to the SG spot. Hollins plays a more traditional lineup compared to Kidd's small ball style. Anderson, Bogdanovic and Jack/D-Will (both can play spot min at the 2) who will be the backup wings. Anderson gives them time to develop Brown and Karasev who won't be ready for big minutes.

The Nets barring major health issues should still be a good team with solid depth. Probably another 2nd round exit at best though.

Joe played a lot of SF last year, for sure, and probably will play even more this upcoming year. He was still primarily a 2 last year, so pardon me for letting old habits die hard. Really though, my only point was that I don't think Anderson is starting, regardless of whether or not Joe is playing the 2 or 3. What do I know? Hopefully not as much as you. I know Livingston started a lot of games alongside Deron. I know Anderson was inserted in place of Livingston later in the playoffs. I know that Anderson is as able to play both the 2 and 3 as Joe is...and when they were on the court together from what I saw it was a fluid thing. Joe probably is the starting 3, I'll concede that. I was wrong! How dare I slip up!?

I just think it's a sad day if people are excited for Anderson to be starting games. I'm also not sure he will.

The poor accounting in the Nets front office is mind blowing. It's like everything was going smooth until they got that luxury tax Bill and now they're freaking out. They're trying to be super cheap, it's not like the luxury tax information was a secret. They should have done their financial homework before making that horrendous trade with Boston.

I'm pretty sure they understood the bill before making the move. They mortgaged a few years of their future for a shot at a ring. Turns out MIA was just too strong and they couldn't get over the hump. Was it worth it probably not seeing where they are now.

They aren't being cheap though. Pierce was the only player they let walk and that would have cost them 20M to resign him. Is he worth that? No. Is he making them a championship contender? doubtful.

I think you're confusing cheap and financially smart. Why spend an extra 20M on him when he doesn't get them where they want to be. Nets are moving towards 2016 when they'll basically have nothing on the books outside of D-Will (expiring contract). They'll probably still be competitive for the next two years (playoffs with 1st or 2nd round exits) with a mix of vets D-Will, JJ, Lopez, AA, AK, Jack, Plumlee, Mirza etc with a few young guys sprinkled in and look for a complete rebuild in 2016.

Everyone points to the loss but in reality he has made a ton on his investment. The value of the Franchise and arena has skyrocketed since he bought in. It takes money to make money and Proky is making a bundle.

As for AA - it's a great depth signing at a bargain price. Compare his deal to the one's Sefalosha and Morrow signed this off-season. Coach Hollins should do a good job casting him in the Tony Allen role.

Anderson played a big role. He started game 7 against the Raps and definitely set the tone with strong defense and taking the ball to the hole. Without him we probably lose that game.

If they had a Paul Pierce 1-year rental in mind when they made that deal then they are even more stupid than I thought. I don't think you can call the Nets "financially smart" being that they just wrecked their cap for a couple of years on a mediocre old roster that lasted one year.

Sorry, but it was important that the Nets re-sign him. I'd imagine he could have gotten more money somewhere else.

They weren't planning a 1 year rental, it was supposed to be a championship contender for 2-3 years prior to 2016 until they blew it up for a rebuild when PP and KG retired. They aren't financially smart but that move was.

Looking at how they performed they don't see a championship team anymore and decided to get younger this year in prep for 2016. If they knocked off the Heat and made the ECF or Finals and fell just short I bet you have seen Pierce back. Since they didn't why pay him 20M per year to lose in the second round again? This was also wasn't about money it's about future flexibility. There's more than money at stake here. The repeater tax is very strict on teams and limits them. Signing Pierce would have put them over that and hurt them big time. For a championship team you take the chance, not for a this team.

On paper the trade looked good but it never materialized like they had hoped. They were a really good team but Lebron was better. They'll still be competitive for the next two seasons, avoid the repeater tax and have practically a clean slate in 2016 with a few younger players, if they trade D-Will.

Avoiding the repeater tax was the goal here more than the Nets being cheap.

I'm not concerned at all actually. Your pick won't be that great and the stacked draft was last year, there's not a lot of talent in the 2015 FA class (many guys will get resigned) and you don't have as much cap space as you think you do.

Thanks for your useless post though in a Nets thread regarding a bench player.
