Today, the San Antonio Spurs announced that they have recalled rookie Kyle Anderson from the Austin Spurs.
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.
Anderson’s arrival in Austin came at a good time. The team needed some immediate rebounding help with the losses of Adreian Payne (recall) and JaMychal Green (call-up), and with Josh Davis accepting a contract overseas.
Anderson told ATXSpurs after a recent game that he focused on rebounded and seemed to be transitioning well in Austin/Cedar Park.
The move likely means Jarell Eddie will likely move back into the starting lineup for the Spurs’ game on the road against the Los Angeles D-Fenders tomorrow night.
