Rumors about Alan Anderson and Barcelona
The almighty Barcelona was been exposed this season due to many injuries of key players, namely Pete Mickeal and Juan Carlos Navarro. This resulted to Barcelona losing games both in the ACB and the Euroleague and although some of the gap was covered with the signing of Joe Ingles there is still need for another scorer in the team to take some of the heat.
Solobasket.com reports a rumor that started from a Catalonian radio station, where Alan Anderson(1.98-SG/SF) could be returning to Europe for the Euroleague champions. Anderson wanted in on the American dream and tried to secure a contract in the NBA but where Gary Neal succeeded he didn't. He is currently playing for the New Mexico Thunderbirds in the NBDL and he is doing quite well averaging 21.1 points 8.5 rebounds and 5 assists in 10 games. Anderson played for Maccabi Tel Aviv last season and he has also played for the Charlotte Bobcats, Virtus Bologna, Triumph Lyubertsy and Cibona Zagreb.
The question here is whether he would be able to adapt to the style of team like Barcelona where he wouldn't be the star of the team and his playing time would be diminished.
