Brooklyn Nets sign swingman Justin Anderson

BROOKLYN -- The Brooklyn Nets have signed guard/forward Justin Anderson as a Substitute Player for the remainder of the 2019-20 NBA season. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released.
 
Anderson (6’5”, 231) was previously signed to a 10-day contract with Brooklyn on Jan. 6 and appeared in three games. He also saw action in 16 games (14 starts) this season with Brooklyn’s NBA G League affiliate, the Long Island Nets, averaging a team-high 20.5 points, 6.6 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.0 steals in 33.6 minutes per game en route to All-NBA G League Third Team honors.


The Montross, Va., native has appeared in 219 games across five NBA seasons with Dallas (2015-17), Philadelphia (2017-18), Atlanta (2018-19) and Brooklyn (2020), recording averages of 5.3 points and 2.5 rebounds in 13.1 minutes per contest. He has also seen action in 38 career NBA G League games, registering averages of 21.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.0 steals in 34.5 minutes per game.
 
Anderson was originally selected by the Mavericks with the 21st pick in the first round of the 2015 NBA Draft following a three-year (2012-15) collegiate career at the University of Virginia. While playing for the Cavaliers, Anderson earned National Basketball Coaches Association All-America Third Team honors and was named to the All-ACC Second Team as a junior. He was also named the ACC Sixth Man of the Year by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association as a sophomore.

The Brooklyn Nets have signed swingman Justin Anderson ahead of the NBA restart, per ESPN NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

 

The signing comes after Nets forward Wilson Chandler elected not to participate in the restart, citing the “health and well-being” of his family. Chandler had also been outspoken regarding issues of racial injustice in America, and he came to Kyrie Irving’s defense when the All-Star guard faced backlash for raising questions about the restart.

The Nets were allowed to sign a replacement player to fill Chandler’s spot on the roster, and Anderson will take his place. Brooklyn actually signed Justin Anderson to a 10-day contract back in January. He made just three appearances and saw just under 16 minutes of total action during that stretch

Anderson has spent the majority of the 2019-20 season with the Nets’ G League affiliate in Long Island. The former Virginia star averaged 20.6 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 31 games with the team.

The Nets find themselves in an interesting spot ahead of the restart. Brooklyn currently holds the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference, just a half-game up on the eighth-seeded Orlando Magic.

Although the Nets are in a strong position to earn at least a spot in a potential play-in tournament, they would undoubtedly prefer to hang on to the seventh seed and avoid a first-round matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Anderson figures to give the Nets some depth at the forward spot. Though he hardly saw any run in his first stint with the team, Anderson can supply defense and toughness for Brooklyn as they hope to make a dark horse run in Orlando.

      The NBA season 2019-20 has been already suspended because of the Coronavirus pandemic so why Justin Anderson has been signed as a substitute player? Well, I was eagerly waiting for this season and have even done providing coursework writing service London to the students. But unfortunately, this pandemic has destroyed everything.

      It's interesting how the NBA made this decision. All this makes me miss sports so much! Can't believe it has been over 5/6 months since any sports events have happened. I remember the last time I went to an NBA final was when I bunked college to go to the match. I ended up having to purchase college essays since I didn't have time left to write my essay myself. Guilty!
