There were a lot of suitors for Alan Anderson — a solid NBA bench two-guard who can come in and knock down some threes plus play solid defense. For teams trying to round out their bench at an affordable price, the 32-year-old NBA veteran was an attractive target.
The Washington Wizards won the bidding. Maybe by overpaying a little, but they won the bidding.

J. Michael of CSNWashington.com confirmed the news.
The Wizards were willing to pay a little more to keep this a one-year deal — they want all their cap space available to go after Kevin Durant next summer.
The Wizards signed Gary Neal and traded for Jared Dudley this summer, giving them a lot of players on the wings behind Bradley Beal and Otto Porter. Dudley and Porter could see a lot of time at the stretch four spot if the Wizards go small more (as they should).
