According to The Vertical, power forward Ryan Anderson agreed to a four-year, $80 million deal with the Rockets Saturday. 

Anderson, 28, should provide Houston the stretch-4 they badly needed last season. The 6-10 shooter averaged 18 points and six rebounds per game last season despite coming off the bench for the Pelicans until Anthony Davis went down with an injur

y. He has also shot close to 38 percent from beyond the arc throughout his career.

James Harden is one of the best in the league at getting to the basket, but Anderson's presence should help stretch the floor and give him more room to get in the paint and either finish or kick it out.

The Rockets were also chasing Kent Bazemore, but he opted to re-sign with the Atlanta Hawks, paving the way for Anderson's deal.
