As Nets complete roster (we think), Carmelo Anthony calls Brooklyn's off-season "special"

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

The Nets officially signed Alan Anderson, the 6'6" swingman, to a two-year, vets minimum deal Tuesday. Anderson becomes the 15th man on Brooklyn's roster, and the seventh player added since Draft Night. Billy King's moves have impressed a lot of people, not the least of whom plays for the team across the river.

"It’s special what [Brooklyn] did," Carmelo Anthony told ESPN's Jeff Goodman Tuesday. "J-Kidd will have four or five future Hall of Famers. I played with him for a year and also with USA Basketball and I know his mentality. He knows the game. It won’t be hard for him to deal with those guys because he’ll put them in position and only have to tell them things one time."

Melo thinks his Knicks did well too, calling the trade for Andrea Bargnani "a steal" but when asked if his Knick future depended on the team's success this year, he declined to answer. "I can’t do that," Anthony said. "It’s too tough right now."

In the Nets announcement about the Anderson signing, which will cost the Nets more than $4 million in salary and luxury taxes, King said, "He is a versatile player who will add flexibility to our rotation."
