Raptors make a trade -- but it's a small one
They've acquired David Andersen from the Houston Rockets and some cash for a future second round draft pick, according to team sources.
Big? No. A deal? Yes.
Andersen slides into the trade exception and the second-round pick that goes out is one for 2015 belonging to the Clippers and is protected Nos. 51-55.
I know, that's as obscure a pick as you can imagine.
Andersen's hardly overwhelming but is maybe intriguing.
He's a 6-11 Australian who came to Houston from a career in Europe and Russia last season and averaged 5.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and about 14 minutes a game in 63 games.
He's more depth for the frontcourt and with a contract that pays him $2.5 million this season with a team option at $2.7 million for 2011-12, he's hardly a bank-breaker.
