The San Antonio Spurs just announced they are re-assigning rookie guard James Anderson to the Austin Toros.
Anderson was with the Toros for two games before the Spurs called him back up prior to their game with the Houston Rockets last Saturday.
Anderson, a 6-6, 215-pound guard, was originally assigned to Austin on January 26. He appeared in two games for the Toros, averaging 14.5 points and 2.0 rebounds in 14.0 minutes. He shot .556 (10-18) from the field, .444 (4-9) from three-point territory and .714 (5-7) from the free throw line. Anderson was recalled by the Spurs on January 29 and saw limited action in three games.
The move should help Anderson, who was still working on his conditioning through his stint with the Toros. At the time, Toros coach Brad Jones said that Anderson looked tired after his second game. A gradual increase in minutes per game seems to be exactly what Anderson needs.
Anderson needs more conditioning, he will need to play at least 20-25 minutes per game he will not get that with the Spurs right now so sending him back to Austin was a logical move.
I don't understand this move, I think he can get the increase minutes in this coming road comes against sub .500 teams.
@Alvin He lost his spot in the rotation and needs some work getting back into playing shape. his last d-league game before the Spurs re-called him, he looked winded early. He was shooing the lights out but his d looked bad, and that's all conditioning.
