“If I was gonna take the minimum, I was gonna take it on the best team that wanted me,” Anderson said via conference call on Wednesday afternoon.

“The Nets were by far the best team that was trying to sign me, but I had other offers from teams that were offering more money, but the fit wasn’t the right for for me.

I’m not getting younger and I want to win. I’m a winner.”[/quote_box]
