The Houston Rockets just lost Dwight Howard to the Atlanta Hawks after he opted out of the final year of his deal, and after talks with many players, they finally found their man.
Houston signed 28 year old Ryan Anderson to a four-year, $80 million contract, per Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.
Free agent Ryan Anderson plans to sign a four-year, $80M deal with the Houston Rockets, league sources tell @TheVertical.

Anderson played for New Orleans for the past four years, and played in 66 games this season averaging 17 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 1.1 assists per game. His big contribution, which will fit the Rockets style of play well well, is his three point shot, where he shot 37% from while knocking down a pair of triples per game. Anderson’s ability to light it up will complement James Harden beautifully when he attracts a double team.
Although he’s not known as a defender, Anderson can also get down inside with the big men and his 6’11” frame will surely help the Rockets play fast as well as big.
