James Anderson is apparently going to be a Hawk

There were high hopes for James Anderson with the Spurs when he was drafted, but he just never could fit. Not everyone can mesh with the Spurs’ approach, and it’s hard to see whether it’s a talent or fit issue, though there are certainly considerable gaps in his game. And as a free agent, it looks like he’s headed elsewhere.

Spurs Nation tip us off to this tweet from Spurs’ teammate Danny Green:

Got to show love n shout my guy @25_Anderson out for the new deal with Atlanta…Congrats man! Bright future ahead

via Twitter / DGreen_14: Got to show love n shout my ….

Maybe Green has bad information, here, but it certainly looks like Anderson will be a Hawk next season. The Hawks need some athleticism on the wing with Anthony Morrow and Kyle Korver both pure shooters. Maybe in a more athleticism-based system, he can find some success. We’ll keep you updated on whether he officially inks with Atlanta.

    Oh man, yes. This is what’s gonna put the Hawks over the top.

    how awkward would it be if the hawks changed their minds on signing anderson and green had to make a 2nd tweet?

    Think what you want but this guy can play! Didn’t work out with the Spurs but I see good things happening with a new team.

    What the Hawks are looking for is an athletic SF. That would complete the team because that’s exactly what’s needed.

    If this guy has good cardio at SF, it should be exactly what the Hawks need. They are trying to build with Josh Smith, Al Horford and Jeff Teague- all guys that loves to run and get out in the open court.
