Over his career, the California native is averaging 11.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 4.4 assists and shooting 34.8 per cent from beyond the arc. Joe Harris, who was 7-of-8 from three on the night, threw it in to D'Angelo Russell who was unable to shake free of Danny Green's great closeout and missed a desperation heave off the rim.

"Heck of an addition for the Raptors", Anderson said before the Nets tipped off against Toronto on Monday.

The Raptors were without guard Fred VanVleet, who is expected to be out at least three weeks with an injured thumb.

VanVleet suffered the injury in the second quarter of Saturday's win over NY.
