Ryan Anderson: To Re-sign or Not


What should we do with the Most Improved Player of the year?

Evan Dunlap's earlier analysis: Most notably, he needs to work on creating himself off the dribble when opposing power forwards manage to run him off the three-point line. Anderson also has his work cut out for him defensively, where he needs to bulk up in order to avoid being made a target. Teams with strong post presences at the four-spot often go right at Anderson defensively to begin games, both to put Anderson in foul trouble and to score inside. (A-)

He is a stretch power forward that works well in the 4-1 system. He is an above average 6' 10' defender. He is the league's leading three-point shooter. He is a good rebounder (~8 per game). He is a mini Kevin Love. Although Kevin Love is 24 in September while Anderson turned 24 in May.

His playoff commencement was abysmal offensively. But does that really matter? (Because we were playing without Dwight...)

He is also a restricted free agent. Sacramento will bid high for him. The question is how high (under the new Collective Bargain Agreement).

My Valuable Opinion: Offer him $6 million. Teams with a need for a perimeter shooter will take him. Use that cap-space and clear some more with the draft-picks to pursue the likes of Goran Dragic (albeit Dragic is too costly but he can move Jameer Nelson to 6th man.). Pursue playmakers not shooters. Or pursue a lot of really cheap playmakers such as Tracy McGrady. Pick up a mid-level like Danny Green to replace Ryan Anderson.
