    Shandong brings in Alan Anderson and Othello Hunter

    Coming off of a disappointing season last year where both Rodney White and Myron Allen failed to live up to expectations, the Flaming Bulls will bring in two new players this year, Alan Anderson and Othello Hunter. Anderson, a graduate of Michigan State, played a couple of years with the Charlotte Bobcats from 2005-07 with a stint with the D-League's Tulsa 66ers mixed in between. Since then he's played with teams in Italy (VidiVici Bologna), Russia (Triumph Lyubertsy), Croatia (Cibona Zagreb), Israel (Maccabi Tel Aviv) and Spain (Regal Barcelona). Last year for Barcelona, the 6-6 Anderson won MVP of the Spanish National Cup.

    Hunter, a 6-8 forward out of Ohio State, played two seasons for the Atlanta Hawks in 2008-09 and 2009-10. He's played for two teams in Europe, of Dinamo Basket Sassari in Italy and of Ilisiakos B.C. in Greece.

    Othello Hunter, CSKA Moscow, VTB United League (Russia)
    Stats (EuroLeague)
    : 7.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.5 steals, 0.4 blocks, 59.6 shooting percentage, 0.0 3-point percentage, 72.7 free-throw percentage, 17.4 minutes per game

    Season in a nutshell: As a 33-year-old big man, Hunter is the oldest player on CSKA Moscow this season, but the 6-foot-8 center is among the starting five. His team captured the EuroLeague title in May, and it will begin the CTB United Finals in a best-of-three series against Khimki on Wednesday. Hunter has quality guards and wings for his team to rely on, so he's able to man the paint.

    Game of the year: In a win against Zenit on May 23, Hunter dropped 22 points in 20 minutes by hitting 9-of-10 shots and 4-of-4 free throws. He had six rebounds, too.

    Notable teammates: Sergio Rodriguez (NBA), Nando De Colo (NBA), Will Clyburn (Iowa State), Cory Higgins (Colorado), Alec Peters (Valparaiso)
