Alan Anderson to reportedly opt-out of contract with Nets

Mike Ehrmann

Reports have circulated about the intentions of nearly all of the Brooklyn Nets pending free agents. However, talk of Alan Anderson's future with the team has been pretty quiet, until now.

Chris Haynes of Comcast SportsNet Northwest reports that Anderson will tell the Nets soon about his decision to opt out of his contract with the team and become a free agent.

The report was later confirmed by Tim Bontemps and Mike Mazzeo.

It's interesting that the initial report came from Haynes, a Portland Trail Blazers insider, considering that Anderson hasn't had any connection to the team in the past.

Anderson will be opting out of his last year with the Nets that is worth a little over $1 million. The wing averaged 7.2 points per game on 40% shooting from the field in more than 22 minutes of action in his lone season with Brooklyn as the team's first wing off the bench for a majority of the season as he filled in for an injured Andrei Kirilenko. He even filled in at point guard on occasion.

Anderson was inserted into the starting lineup for games six and seven in the Nets first round series with the Toronto Raptors, a crucial lineup change that swung the momentum of the series.
