Anderson, 28, had narrowed his choices to the Rockets and Sacramento Kings. Anderson, a Northern California native, had strong ties to the region and seriously considered a return close to home to play with the Kings.
Anderson has long been coveted in Houston as a 3-point shooter who can spread the floor for All-Star guard James Harden. Anderson averaged 17 points and six rebounds for the New Orleans Pelicans this past season.
