WASHINGTON (AP) Free-agent shooting guard Alan Anderson has agreed to a $4 million, one-year contract with the Washington Wizards that should become official later this week.

Anderson's agent, Mark Bartelstein, confirmed the terms of the deal on Tuesday.

Teams cannot sign deals with free agents until Thursday.

The 6-foot-6 Anderson played the past two years with the Brooklyn Nets, averaging 7.4 points and 2.8 rebounds last season.

He has spent a total of six seasons with three teams in the NBA, but also has played professionally overseas.

Anderson, 32, represents the latest new face for a Wizards team that reached the second round of the playoffs last season. Washington also is adding Gary Neal via free agency, Jared Dudley via a trade, and Kelly Oubre Jr. via the draft.
