Just one day after being called up by the San Antonio Spurs, Kyle Anderson has been reassigned to the Austin Spurs of the NBA’s Developmental League.
In two stints with Austin this season Anderson has appeared in 10 games, averaging 22.3 points, 10.2 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.10 blocks in 41.0 minutes. He was named the NBA D-League Performer of the Week for the week of Feb. 2–8. Austin is 8-2 in the games Anderson has played in.
The former UCLA Bruin has appeared in 27 games for San Antonio, averaging 2.6 points and 2.5 rebounds in 12.6 minutes per contest.
To be fair to the San Antonio Spurs, they just announced yesterday that they had signed Reggie Williams for the remainder of the season. Plus, it was speculated that the main reason Anderson was called up before last night’s game against the Warriors, was strictly for insurance purposes, in the case that Pop would rest most of his starters. Ultimately, Anderson was listed as inactive for the game.
Also, Anderson has been a vital piece to the Austin Spurs 24-9 record, best in the D-League. His scoring ability and willingness to rebound has been in desperate need since JaMychal Green’s departure to San Antonio, and most recently the Memphis Grizzlies.
Anderson will be in uniform for the Austin Spurs as they take on the Los Angeles D-Fenders tonight. Tip-off is at 9:30pm EST from the Toyota Sports Center.
