Andersens draft rights were traded to the Houston Rockets (for $2 million cash and a future second round draft pick) who signed him to a 3 year $7.5 million contract.
In his first year with the Rockets, Andersen averaged 5.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in 63 games before being traded to the Toronto Raptors in 2010 for a protected second round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.
Andersen only played 11 games into the 2010-2011 season before being traded to the New Orleans Hornets where he still currently plays.
