Alan Anderson has re-signed with the Nets for two years.

The amount of money he signed for is unclear at the moment. He played well in his first year with Brooklyn by averaging 7.2 points and just over one three pointer made per game. His fantasy value could take a jump if he starts at the small forward position, since Paul Pierce left to sign with the Wizards.

Kevin Garnett wants to return to Brooklyn and the Nets feelings are mutual.

Garnett still has a year left on his contract so it's nice to see that he will honor it and not force a trade. The team can now move forward and take care of the rest of their offfseason business.

Sources expect Nets to sign Bojan Bogdanovic sometime this week. 

The Nets claimed the rights to Bogdanovic back in 2011 but he's been playing in Europe in the Turkish League this whole time. How he'll adjust to the NBA is obviously going to be a major question moving forward.

Nets still expect Kevin Garnett to return for the final year of his contract despite the departure of Paul Pierce to the Washington Wizards Saturday.

What's the saying wish in one hand and crap in the other and see which one fills first? If Garnett does not force a trade he may just decide to throw his hands up in the air and say screw it, retirement here I come. If for whatever reason he plays another year, regardless of what team he plays on, he will have as much fantasy value as Chris Webber had when he played with the Pistons or Rasheed Wallace while with the Knicks. In essence, Garnett will either light up a retirement cigar or become the new victory cigar.

Nets Brook Lopez (foot) has advanced to basketball related activities, league source says. No contact yet but "moving really well" on court.

Lopez is an incredible offensive presence in the paint, and possibly the best offensive center int he NBA when healthy. He had foot surgery in January and then further surgery on his ankle in March, so he has some serious rehab to go through before we can count on him being fully back in 2014-15.

Paul Pierce was knocked out of the World Series of Poker late Thursday night finishing in about 800th place out of 6,683 players.

The Truth lasted about 28 hours into the Main Event, finishing just out of the money. Andrew Feldman pointed out something interesting: A WSOP min-cash is $18,406. Using Pierce's 2013 salary, he would've made that in 2.5 minutes on the court. Speaking of the court, there is still no movement on that front for him or any of the other big-name free agents.

Update: Cavaliers traded Jarrett Jack and Sergey Karasev to the Brooklyn Nets.

Plain and simple, the Cavs are shedding salary here. By dumping both Jack and Karasev, they are clearing enough room to make a strong run at LeBron James. The funny thing though, is what happens to them when LeBron says that he's signing for big market dollars instead of going back to a team and city he already crapped on? Jack averaged 9.5 points and 4.1 assists in 28 minutes last season for the Cavs and will join a backcourt with Derron Williams and Paul Pierce already in place.

Andray Blatche will meet with Toronto on Wednesday in Las Vegas.

Blatche averaged 11.2 points,5.3 rebounds, and 1.5 assists over 22.2 minutes per game last year for Brooklyn. He declined his $1.43 million player option to seek out greener pastures elsewhere. Not sure if Toronto is the right place though.

League source says Bojan Bogdanovic will agree to a three-year deal with a player option in 3rd year for the Nets' mini midlevel exception.

Bogdanovic has been playing for Fenerbahe lker in the European League and will now make the jump to the NBA. The first year of his 3-year, $10.3 million dollar deal is the equivalent to what the fourth overall pick in the NBA draft will receive this season.
