The Houston Rockets signed 28-year old power forward Ryan Anderson to a 4-year, $80 million dollar deal on July 9th, 2016. He is giving them nowhere near enough production for what the Rockets are paying him. Anderson has played in 14 games (all starts) for the Rockets so far this year and he is averaging 32.0 minutes, 12.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game. He is shooting only 38.4% from the floor so far this year, but he is also hitting an impressive 40% from three point range and 83.3% from the free throw line so far this year. They means that Anderson is only hitting 36.5% of his shots from two-point range and that is pretty pathetic for a guy that has hit 46.7% of his shots from that range so far in his NBA career. If Anderson can’t start making the easier (two point shots) shots, he will really give the Rockets another big time offensive weapon to go along with James Harden.
