    Rockets Acquire Rights to David Andersen
    Australian big man headed to Houston

    Houston - The Houston Rockets began the process of bolstering their frontline today, acquiring the rights to 6-11 center David Andersen in a trade with the Atlanta Hawks. In return for the Australian big man, Houston is sending cash and future considerations to Atlanta.

    Andersen, 29, was originally selected by Atlanta in the second round (37th overall) in the 2002 NBA Draft. He joins the Rockets after spending the 2008-09 season with Regal FC Barcelona.

    “David has been a winner with every team he has played for in Europe,” says Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey. “He is a very well-rounded player who possesses good offensive skills and a very good shooting touch for a big man. David is a versatile post player who should fit well in Coach (Rick) Adelman’s system.”

    A native of Carlton, Victoria in Australia, Andersen averaged 11.1 points and 4.1 in helping FC Barcelona to the Euroleague Final Four this past season.

    He was also a member of Australia's men's basketball team during the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. Andersen averaged 6.5 points and 3.5 rebounds for the tournament.

    This is our new big man. I'm not very excited, but this is how I felt when we got Scola.

    I wonder if this guy can be the high-post center that Adelman loves to implement into his motion offense.

    We use our injury exception on Ariza and probably less than half the MLE on Anderson. We haven't spent too much.

    Spending Money on young cheap talent is always better than throwing the MLE at 34 years.

    well we've spend 6 million on 2nd round picks and who knows how much cash we gave up for andersen. i'd guess around a million since we also gave up a future 2nd.

    I was only talking about what will actually affect the salary cap.

    this move would basically signal that we aren't going after a max player in 2010.

    Agreed. In fact, the cap being shortened like it's going to be next year will pretty much screwed up our chances at a max player through free-agency.

    David Alderige mentions Houston as a possibility for Boozer:



    "If Houston wants to hedge its bets against Yao Ming's future, and give Luis Scola some help inside, if only for a year, it has the document -- Tracy McGrady's expiring $22 million contract -- to get to chatting. It's unlikely Utah would part with Boozer and Matt Harpring, long a Sloan favorite, for basketball reasons. But that would be a relatively painless way for the Miller family to get out of tax hell relatively quickly."

    Everytime I've seen him play I thought he played below average. But lots of people rave on about him sometimes.

    You are a fucking moron.

    Spanoulis > Scola > Andersen

    Andersen is also good enough to be a good NBA player you tool.

    Anderson reminds me of Brad Miller. I think he's the high post passing center that Adleman has been craving to run his motion offense. He is rated defensively weak but can pick and pop from the three point line. He can also drive with the ball. Prototypical European Big Man. Not really a strong post up player. Scola will be better than him in that department. But if you put Anderson, Scola and Battier on the floor with Brooks and Ariza I like our chances. We are going to need a hell of a lot more scoring out of Brooks and Scola though. Ariza is really going to have to step up his game.

    Oh and I like how we got him for cash. We still got money to burn and all our guys.

    He is not like Miller. Andersen is very very very very very very SOFT player. He is also really a power forward. I do not know why the fuck Rockets is calling him a center. I will say for certain Morey has never seen him play ever.

    Andersen will not rebound or defend against anyone that is physical with him. Also Andersen will not score in offense when other team gets physical with him.

    Andersen is way better on offense than Miller. I mean he is far better than Miller in offense. There is not much similarity at all between Andersen and Miller.
