  • Trade: David Andersen To Toronto

    Doug Smith

    He's a 6-11 Australian who came to Houston from a career in Europe and Russia last season and averaged 5.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and about 14 minutes a game in 63 games.

    He's more depth for the frontcourt and with a contract that pays him $2.5 million this season with a team option at $2.7 million for 2011-12, he's hardly a bank-breaker.

    DraftExpress

    Andersen still did a nice job showcasing his excellent skill-level, primarily in the form of his jump-shot, knocking down an array of spot-up, pull-up, turnaround and pick and pop jumpers, in the post, from 18-20 feet, and all the way out beyond the 3-point line.

    ABC
    Andersen posted 19 points on 9-of-14 shooting from the floor (career high)...He made one of his three attempts from downtown and pulled down six rebounds in 25 minutes on the court.

    His stats from last year (09/10):

    GP Min Pts FG FGA FG% 2Pt 2PtA 2P% 3Pt 3PtA 3P% FTM FTA FT%
    63 14.2 5.8 2.3 5.4 43.2 1.9 4.2 45.8 0.4 1.2 34.6 0.7 1.1 68.7

    Off Def TOT Asts Stls Blks TOs PFs
    0.9 2.4 3.3 0.7 0.2 0.2 0.6 1.9

    His offense consists primarily of shooting over people. Decent spot-up shooter and decent turn around jumper in the post. His rebounding and defense needs work. Plays more like a PF than C.

    Here's a mix.

      If you aren't going to go for POB might as well get the bloke D. Anderson from Carlton

      This should jazz at least one Raptors Republic poster.

                He is more talented, but lets not carried away. You can play him other than in garbage time

                  it'll allow solo to spend a year (or 2) in the d league where he'll progress more than rotting on the bench.

                    rockets actually played him quite a bit, especially in crunch time, cause of how versatile he was and opened up the floor. don't be surprised if he plays at least 10 mins a game or so.

                          Nothing to get excited about but it would be silly to call this a "bad" move.

                          We added depth upfront for next to nothing. Also gives us the option of having 5 guys on the floor (in their natural positions) who can hit the 3 in situations where we need it. This could be valuable for set plays drawn up during timeouts, final shots, etc. as it would be very tough for defenders to cheat or double team anyone.

                          Depth and options are always a good thing.

                            i've actually heard of him though. better than the other projects we've brought in jawai,garth, pob,dorsey,jones, the list goes on you know who was starting to show signs of improvement douby but then we released him which was ok at the time and then just ended up being pointless.

                              i would have rather had chris andersen, this andersen seems better suited to ride the pine though!
