Nets' Anderson drives free-agent route


NORTH BERGEN, N.J. -- Unhappy about diminished playing time and eager to join a winning organization, New Jersey Nets point guard Kenny Anderson said yesterday that he will become an unrestricted free agent after this season.

Anderson, who earlier rejected a $40 million offer from New Jersey, was benched for the entire fourth quarter of a 105-98 loss Friday night to the Detroit Pistons. Anderson, averaging 14.9 points and 7.7 assists, says he believes the Nets are trying to trade him.
