Chris Andersen on Free Agency: 'Big Money' First

Following one-and-a-half successful seasons in Miami, Chris Andersen opted out of his minimum contract to explore free agency for a potential raise. Still, many Miami Heat fans hoped Birdman would return to the team that gave him his second chance in the NBA.

According to Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press, Andersen will test his market value before making any  decisions.

Really, this doesn’t mean that much other than Andersen stating obvious priorities. A veteran with not much years left, money plays an important priority. Andersen did say he would love to stay in Miami, but guaging his value on the open market is an important exercise for any NBA player. Also, it could be a form of positioning in order to get a well-deserved raise from Pat Riley and Micky Arison.
