Alan Anderson underwent successful arthroscopic surgery today, May 12, to remove bone spurs from his left ankle, Billy King announced. The procedure was performed by Nets' foot and ankle specialist Dr. Martin O'Malley at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.

Anderson is expected to resume basketball-related activities in July.  The 6'7" Anderson has said he's opting out of $1.7 million contract in June, making him an unrestricted free agent. The Nets hold his Early Bird rights, permitting them to re-sign him at up to nearly $6 million a year.

Anderson played in 74 games (19 starts) for Brooklyn this past season, with averages of 7.4 points and 2.8 rebounds per game. In six postseason contests, Anderson posted averages of 11.0 points and 3.5 rebounds per game, while shooting a team-best .610 from the field and .625 from three-point range.
