    Default 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.
    http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2...17/2744778.htm

    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.

    Another soft, jump shooting, priemeter oriented big man who gets pushed around under the basket............I hope BC doesn't try and start Andersen at center. Bargnani, Andersen, Kleiza(who is another jump shooting big that has no mid range game plus he's unable to create off the bounce especially as a SF is better suited for PF)- BC is appearing really desperate and acting a bit irrational in his f/a pick ups, attempted f/a pick ups, trades & attempted trades. More rosters moves have to come.

    he's not desperate he's got a core and h'es just filling roster spaces now. seeing what players can do. bargnani,kleiza,derozan,johnson,jack,weems,davis is the core and only those guys.

    Not good. If his shot isn't going for him, he's pretty much useless on the floor. Bargs 1on1 D is better. Andersen also lacks bulk. I think a couple of summer leagues ago DeJuan Blair was pushing him around under the basket.

    I see there are a lot of chronic whiners here. If you can't see this for what it is, a minor transaction to add a bit of depth at Centre that cost next to nothing then do yourselves a favor and find another sport to comment on or go whine to your mommies and ask for a warm bottle and a diaper change while you're at it. Pathetic!
