The Toronto Raptors have picked up another big man as they have shipped a second round draft pick to the Rockets for Australian centre David Andersen.

The 6'11" Andersen averaged 5.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in 63 games last season for the Rockets, filling in on an emergency basis for injured All-Star Yao Ming.

"David is a skilled big that gives us some insurance at the backup centre position," Raptors president and general manager Bryan Colangelo said in a statement. "He will also bring a veteran presence and savvy to a relatively young team."

Andersen was originally drafted in the second round of the 2002 NBA draft by the Atlanta Hawks before having his draft rights traded to the Rockets.

A Euroleague veteran, the 30-year old Andersen captured Euroleague titles with Virtus Bologna in 2001 and CSKA Moscow in 2006 and 2008.

Andersen has represented Australia at several international tournaments including the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
