    I'm all for bringing Anderson in as a cheap stop gap. Remember, that's how Danny Green got his chance and shined last season. May turn Anderson's career around and open up all kinds of trade opportunities for the Spurs.

    Or he'll get very few minutes, struggle like he has in the past, and go back to the D-league as soon as Kawhi can play again.
    It doesnt matter if hes in Austin he still occupies a roster spot.

    Agreed it should be interesting how Anderson turns out should he be signed

    Could Spurs be interested in Varejao on trade block
    Written by Michael A. De Leon



    Take one look at the comments section on recent posts on Project Spurs, specifically the one about the San Antonio Spurs possibly calling up James Anderson and you'll find an ongoing meme.

    Spurs fans want some size at either the power forward or center position.

    It seemed like a bad joke when Spurs coach Gregg Popovich mentioned Cory Joseph rejoining the team with Stephen Jackson joining Kawhi Leonard on the Spurs' injured ranks. Spurs fans feel the team already has enough six foot nothing guards so it seemed like the return of small ball until the news that Anderson could be called up and the Spurs' interest in yet another Frenchman, Mickael Pietrus.

    But for those Spurs fans looking for another big to join the team, and I'm not talking about Eddy Curry here, there are a few players on the trade block, according to HoopsWorld.

    Apparently, regardless of the fact that Anderson Varejao is having a great season, averaging 14 points and 13 rebounds per game, the Cleveland Cavaliers are still looking at moving the Brazilian big man.

    The Cavaliers feel rookie Tyler Zeller can take over at center, but bad news for Spurs fans, the Cavaliers are looking for some value in return for Varejao, especially in the variety of younger players on rookie contracts. It also seems like Luke Walton would have to be a part of any trade for him.


    League sources said bluntly, that anything involving Varejao is also going to have to move out Luke Walton and his $6 million ending contract and return youth and draft picks.

    But fret not, Spurs fans. Another player both Trevor Zickgraf and I are high on could also be available as the trade deadline gets closer.


    The Bobcats would love to move Tyrus Thomas and, believe it or not, there were some teams around the draft that at least considered it as part of a bigger deal, mainly because the Cats were dangling the draft pick that became Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

    Thomas has put up pedestrian numbers in a reserve role for the Bobcats this season, but you can't teach athleticism or height and Thomas has both of those. Thomas' current contract could scare enough teams away, but a creative GM could find a way to make it happen, even though there are better odds on Antonio McDyess coming out of retirement for a second stint in silver and black.

    The same HoopsWorld article also mentioned Spurs forward DeJuan Blair among the players that could be moved soon. Even though Blair has turned things around and has earned some starts, the site still says Blair's days are numbered in San Antonio.

    JMcDonald_SAEN To be clear(er), Anderson is in Boston right now. Once Spurs make signing official (tomorrow presumably), they're at max 15.
    sounds like Anderson will in fact have a 2nd chance

    How about we see about picking up a veteran for the mean time. We don't necessarily need a young player, we are getting back Leonard soon. I was thinking someone on the lines of Michael Redd. He's a solid shooter and has proved him self in the past.. Averages 18 pts a game for his career and about 38 percent 3 point shooter for career. Hes not too big but not too small. What do you guys think?

    SPURS SIGN ANDERSON, RECALL JOSEPH
    Written by Michael A. De Leon

    As soon as San Antonio Spurs fans became aware that Stephen Jackson would be out with an injury he suffered in the first quarter of Monday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers, the search for an available small forward immediately began, considering Kawhi Leonard is also injured.

    While I listed several D-League prospects the Spurs could call up, I thought the injury could mean the return of James Anderson in black and silver, as did many other Spurs fans and bloggers.

    The former Oklahoma State guard/forward is likely now on his way to Boston as the team has officially announced his signing, calling him up from the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the D-League.

    Anderson participated in training camp with the Atlanta Hawks this past October before signing with the D-League. He appeared in six preseason games in Atlanta and averaged 2.0 points in 10.7 minutes.

    Anderson is just a band-aid until Jax and KL come back. There was a reason why the Spurs didnt pick up Andersons contract last year. Hes an undersized 2 guard that is a B athlete and is a very inconsistent shooter who struggles staying infront of his man.

    He hasnt looked the same after suffering that injury with us like 2 years ago.

    Curious how Pop uses Anderson in the upcoming 4 in 5. Assuming Washington's not a trap game and Spurs seal it early, could see him get alot of burn.

    Anderson coming back is fine. In the longterm obviously a replacement will be needed. But, with Leonard and Jack out he's a solid choice since he knows the system. I want someone like JuJuan Johnson or Jordan Williams brought in over Cory Joseph.

    Jack posted a pic of his finger getting worked on, figured I'd share it here. Can't wait for him and Kawhi to get back.
