   2017 NBA Manifesto

Ryan Anderson
PF, 6’10, 240lbs, 29 years old, 9 years of experience

Anderson has this worrying habit of completely disappearing in the playoffs, and has had it his whole career. He did so again this season, at a time when, in the absence of Nene and the strength in depth up front of the opposing San Antonio Spurs, he was needed more than ever. The regular season Anderson is an important scorer, mostly from outside but also capable enough round the basket and on the increasingly rare post-fallaways (although as a Rocket, the threes volume was enormous and will remain so). He won't roll, but his pops are lethal, shooting more than 40% on threes on a very high volume. But when he's not doing threes, he's not doing much. And for whatever reason, in the playoffs, he becomes terminally streaky.

Player Plan: Three years and circa. $61.265 million remaining, with no options. It is said that the team is trying to move Anderson’s contract in order to open up significant cap space. Perhaps attaching the next player listed to it will help with that.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 9th November 2017

The often-streaky Anderson is largely a three-point specialist at this point offensively (he has taken 87 three-pointers compared to only 19 two-pointers all season), which gives rise to the streakiness. His rebounding days are behind him, and he never did contribute defensive stats. Nevertheless, he is picked here for a simple reason – Luc Richard Mbah A Moute, who has had a very good season as Anderson’s backup, will not play tonight. So even if he is 2-7 from three-point land with not much else going on, Anderson should see more minutes tonight.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
