RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Anderson built on his breakout season in 2011-12 with another strong campaign in 2012-13, establishing himself as one of the best three-point shooters in the league. The stretch forward averaged 16.2 points (42 percent from the field, 84 percent from the line), 6.4 rebounds and 2.6 three-pointers made per game despite playing on a new team and in a new system. Despite not providing fantasy teams with the typical big man stats such as rebounds, blocks and field goal percentage, Anderson's three-point shooting ability made him relevant in all fantasy formats. He missed just six games over the past two seasons, further adding to his fantasy value heading into the 2013-14 season. Anderson might start alongside sophomore sensation Anthony Davis in at the frontcourt, giving him all the room to operate beyond the three-point arc. His rebounding numbers are not likely to improve, as Anderson plays further from the basket. However, with new additions in Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans taking on some of the defensive pressure, Anderson may see even more opportunities from downtown. Anderson will head into this coming season at the age of 25, hopefully with more confidence than ever.

2012-13

Anderson won the NBA’s Most Improved Player award in 2011-12 while averaging 16.1 points and 7.7 rebounds and shooting 39.3 percent for Orlando. The award sounds nice, but sometimes being most improved means a player just got a chance to play more minutes. And that’s what happened for Anderson, who averaged 10 more minutes per game. He made the most of the extra playing time and earned himself a four-year deal with the rebuilding Hornets. It may be hard for Anderson to replicate his production in 2012-13. One hurdle is that there were more shooters to defend on Orlando’s roster last season than will line up with him in New Orleans. Playing off Dwight Howard is not the same as playing off Robin Lopez. Anderson, who has a reputation of playing away from the basket, was a surprising fifth in the league in offensive rebounding last season. We’re expecting a drop in his rebounding production this year. He’s supposed to see most of his time at small forward and power forward but could also see some minutes at center. How opponents defend Anderson and scheme against the team will change. He’ll draw more attention. He’s got value as a long-distance shooter--the Hornets ranked 23rd in three-point shooting and 29th in offense--so someone like Anderson is needed in New Orleans. After Eric Gordon, Anderson should get the second most shots on this team.

2011-12

Anderson is an ideal fit for Stan Van Gundy’s perimeter-shooting friendly offense. He provides the luxury of spreading the floor with his three-point shooting (39 percent last season). Even though he’s not a defensive presence at 6-10, his rebounding improved last year, despite playing next to Howard. As long as Howard is drawing double teams, Anderson will be a lethal 3-point shooter and should easily average double digits.

2010-11

Rashard Lewis is not the only 6-10 player on the Magic’s roster who prefers to play away from the basket. Anderson’s size indicates ‘power forward,’ but he plays more like a guard. He hit 78 three-pointers last season and shot an efficient 86.6 percent from the free throw line. Those numbers alone give him some fantasy value, and the chance to see more tick when Lewis moves to the wing makes him a nice upside pick late in your draft.

2009-10

Anderson was a throw-in to the Carter deal, but he's not your typical trade filler. Anderson, who will be entering just his second season, has a nice shooting touch for a big man and has already started 30 games in his career. He probably won't see the playing time with the Magic that he did with the Nets last season, but he could help the club replace some of the production lost with the departure of Hedo Turkoglu.
