James Anderson is not getting a lot of run from Gregg Popovich in San Antonio right now, he has pretty much slipped to the back of the rotation. Monday night he played 7:35 and had five points for the Spurs.

So the guard wants out, reports Buck Harvey, columnist with the Express-News on twitter.

Sources say James Anderson’s agent this month encouraged Spurs to trade his client. Nothing offered would have been better than JA Monday.

Anderson, a second year player out of Oklahoma State, is averaging 4 points per game this year in his limited minutes. With the Spurs on an 11 game win streak, don’t expect Popovich to be making a lot of rotation changes.

Not a major deal, but if he wants out the Spurs likely will try to accommodate that. However, as these are the Spurs it has to be a deal they like, so it may not be fast.

    First round pick two years ago that got buried in the Spurs rotation due to lack of experience and injury issues. He was a major scorer at OSU his whole time there and can create his own shot.

    If he gets traded from the Spurs then he can kiss his NBA career goodbye once his contract runs out. If you can’t make it in the Spurs organization, then you can’t make it anywhere! Coach Pop’ uses the most ragged, little-known, previously under-used, “who-the-F-is that?” players in the league and somehow spins them into gold.

    Anderson is a stud. After they drafted Leonard it was a lose-lose situation for Anderson. The kid can play but he needs playing time, they should just trade him to the D-League All Star Team (Charlotte).

    Second-year players aren’t allowed to ask for trades. Earn the right whiner.
