According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Knicks have been reluctant to consider taking on forward Ryan Anderson from Houston in a deal centered around Carmelo Anthony.
Melo recently said that he's open to waiving his no-trade clause, but only if he can go to Houston or Cleveland. Anderson has been shopped by the Rockets for a while, but it's not going to be easy to move his contract -- he's owed $61 million over the next three seasons. The Knicks are finally embracing a rebuild and are trying to avoid long-term salary commitments to older players, so it's clear why Anderson doesn't fit into their plans. Jul 3 - 10:35 AM

The Rockets are reportedly trying to find a team with cap space to take on Ryan Anderson in order to create more cap space for free agency this offseason.

Anderson is on the books for $19.6 million next season and owed $61.3 million over the next three years, which is a relatively reasonable contract for a four-man who connected on 40.3 percent of his 3-point attempts this past season. The Rockets have reportedly reached out to the Kings regarding a potential Ryno deal, but it's unclear if there is any mutual interest there.

The Rockets have reportedly made Ryan Anderson, Patrick Beverley and Lou Williams available via trade in order to open up some cap space for free agency this summer.

Trading away these guys would help the Rockets bring in another superstar to play alongside James Harden, and thus far, they've been linked to Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Kyle Lowry, Paul Millsap and Paul George. Both Williams and Beverley make for very enticing trade chips as both guys are on the final year of their very cap friendly contracts, and Anderson's 3-point shooting prowess from the four-spot should be able to attract some potential suitors. Stay tuned.

Ryan Anderson went scoreless on his six attempts from the field in 25 minutes against the Spurs on Thursday, adding six rebounds and two turnovers.

The Rockets actually had some success with Ryan Anderson at the five during the season, but it just didn't work out against this team. He also had 72 games played this year after missing at least 14 games in each of the previous three years. He'll likely be in a similar role next year and will likely be in the neighborhood of his 13.6 points per game from 2016-17.

Ryan Anderson scored 19 points off the bench vs. the Spurs in Game 5 on Tuesday, hitting 7-of-11 from the field with seven rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers.

Despite the move to the second unit, Anderson still played 36 minutes as the backup four and five as the Rockets used a seven-man rotation for the entire game. This was easily his best game of the postseason after averaging 9.3 points on 38.7 percent shooting in his previous nine games, so maybe he can keep it going for Game 6 on Thursday as the Rockets attempt to force a Game 7. Clint Capela added nine points, 11 rebounds, three blocks, one assist and one steal for the Rockets.

Ryan Anderson said he expects to come off the bench for Game 5 in San Antonio on Tuesday with Nene (groin) unavailable.

It sounds like Eric Gordon will move into the starting five for Tuesday's Game 5 with Trevor Ariza sliding over to the four-spot, but Anderson should still get a good amount of minutes with the second unit as he helps man the center spot with Clint Capela. Check back for official confirmation on Houston's lineup closer to tip-off on Tuesday.

Ryan Anderson served as the Rockets' default center for long stretches during Game 4, finishing with 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting, three 3-pointers, four rebounds and one turnover.

Anderson came off the bench to start the second half, as the Rockets went small with Nene (groin) leaving in the first quarter. He played 32 minutes and made a handful of timely buckets, while holding his own against LaMarcus Aldridge defensively. Ryno's role for Game 5 on Tuesday hinges on Nene's availability.

Ryan Anderson said he will look for other ways to contribute to the Rockets when his shot isn't falling following his 0-of-4 shooting performance in Game 3.

"I didn't have a lot of opportunities," Anderson said after being held to two points, one board and one steal in 29 minutes in Game 3. "That's going to happen sometimes. Obviously, they want to take me away from shooting. I have to do what I can to spread the court. I need to be aggressive, rebound the ball better. But there is going to be games where their attention is trying to take me out of shooting 3s. So, it just opens up spacing. That's why I'm here, for the space." The Spurs shifted Danny Green onto Anderson because Kawhi Leonard is now guarding James Harden, and given his current shooting slump, it's difficult to trust him in fantasy leagues -- Anderson's shooting 0-of-18 from 3-point range at home during the playoffs and 11-of-25 on the road.
May 7 - 10:11 AM

Ryan Anderson made his first seven shots on Wednesday, finishing 7-of-9 for 18 points with eight rebounds, four 3-pointers, one assist, and zero defensive stats or turnovers in 35 minutes.

Anderson landed hard on his left wrist in the third quarter, requiring a brief exit, but he soon returned and looked no worse for the wear. Ryno struggled in the first round this postseason, averaging 7.4 points on 33.3 percent shooting, but he's been hot in two games vs. the Spurs. His wrist was already wrapped coming into the game and we'll keep an eye on it as the series moves to Houston for Game 3 on Friday.
May 4 - 12:33 AM

Ryan Anderson went 2-of-5 from the field and 4-of-4 from the stripe on his way to nine points, three boards, one 3-pointer, one steal and three turnovers during Sunday's Game 4 win over the Thunder.

Anderson has been struggling mightily during this first-round series, owning meager averages of 8.8 points, 6.0 boards and just 0.8 triples per contest on 36.4 percent shooting, yet the Rockets are now up 3-1 with the series headed back to Houston. It's just a tough matchup for Anderson, and there are no guarantees he'll bounce back in Game 5. Clint Capela was also really bad tonight with just four points, five boards, one assist and two turnovers in 18 minutes.
Apr 23 - 7:12 PM

Ryan Anderson had another brutal game on Wednesday, shooting 1-of-8 from the field and 0-of-7 from downtown for four points in 29 minutes.

Anderson added just three rebounds and one block, without any assists or steals, and this marks his second straight dud in the playoffs. The perimeter specialist is a combined 0-of-11 from deep in the postseason, yet his team has managed to reel off consecutive wins -- it's a testament to Houston's deep offensive firepower.
Apr 19 - 11:00 PM

Ryan Anderson drained 6-of-8 shots from downtown on Sunday, going 7-of-9 overall for 21 points, one rebound and one steal.

This crystallizes Ryno's role with the Rockets -- spot-up beyond the arc and spread out defenses. He's grabbed double-digit rebounds just twice all season, which is incredible given the Rockets' fast pace, and he's averaging a paltry 0.9 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.2 blocks. He is, in short, little more than a 3-point specialist.
Apr 9 - 9:09 PM

Ryan Anderson (ankle) looked good in his return against the Pistons on Friday, scoring nine points with three rebounds, one block and three 3-pointers in 13 minutes during the first half.

He had a limit for this game, but the Rockets have to be pleased how he started out today. Anderson will likely get additional limitations the rest of the season, so he isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Apr 7 - 9:27 PM

Ryan Anderson (ankle) will be limited to 15 minutes in the first half and then call it a night against the Pistons on Friday.

He's back after missing one week. Anderson's return to the lineup should take a few minutes away from the wings like Lou Williams, Trevor Ariza and Eric Gordon. He's still not someone fantasy owners should be picking up, especially with the Rockets having nothing to play for.
Apr 7 - 6:21 PM

Ryan Anderson (ankle) said he will return for Friday's game vs. the Pistons, but will play only limited minutes.

The Rockets are essentially locked into the three seed in the West, so they have no reason to push Anderson. However, he wants to get in rhythm prior to the start of the postseason. Neither Anderson nor the Rockets have given specifics as to exactly how much he'll play, but he probably won't log more than 20-25 minutes on Friday. Troy Williams loses most of his fantasy value with Anderson back in the mix. Also, Trevor Ariza will see less time at power forward.
