If you ever wondered what happened to former San Antonio Spurs guard Derek Anderson, you're in luck. Raul Barrigon over at HoopsHype recently interviewed the former Kentucky Wildcat, where he had some pretty interesting things to say about current Spurs General Manager R.C. Buford.
For those who don't remember, Anderson signed with the Spurs for one year back in the summer of 2000, instantly catapulting San Antonio back into contender status. Anderson played all 82 games while averaging 15.5 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists, helping the Spurs to a 58-24 record, good enough for the top seed in the West.
Then a flagrant foul from Juwan Howard separated his shoulder and ended his season in the second round against the Mavericks. The Spurs would advance to the Western Conference Finals without Anderson, but were swept by the Lakers.no comments
