NBA Free Agency 2016: Clippers Interested in Alan Anderson

New, comment

Names of targets are starting to leak out.

According to Darren Wolfson, the Clippers are among teams interested in veteran wing Alan Anderson:

Anderson is a 6'6" SG/SF who has bounced around the league (and world) in his career.  He only played in 13 games last season, but the season before may have been the best of his career as he put up 7.4 points and 2.8 rebounds in 24 minutes a game while shooting 45% from the field and 34.8% from deep.

As a Clipper, Anderson would be called upon as a 3-and-D small forward, which is his game.  He's a career 34.5% shooter from three-point range, which isn't great but is better than any Clipper last season not named Chris Paul or J.J. Redick.

It's unclear how much the Clippers are looking to pay Anderson, but he'd be a great signing for the league minimum.  I'm not sure that they can get him for that cheap, especially considering the other teams that have registered interest, but maybe the Bi-Annual-Exception would do the trick.
