During the off-season, Anderson signed a 1-year partially-guaranteed minimum deal with the Rockets to come back with the team. He played in two previous seasons with the Rockets before being traded to the Phoenix Suns in exchange for Marquese Chriss and Brandon Knight. He would later be traded to the Miami Heat and waived at the end of the season.
Anderson, an 11-year veteran, has played for other teams like the New Jersey Nets, Orlando Magic and the New Orleans Pelicans. For his career, Anderson has averages of 12.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 0.9 assists in 25.8 minutes per game while shooting 38% from the three-point line.
