After leading his team to yet another close victory against the Atlanta Hawks this weekend, Spurs Small Forward, Kyle Anderson was also named 2015 Summer League MVP. Anderson averaged 22 points per game, 5.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.3 steals this Summer. Not only that, but again, he’s helping his team tremendously, as they’ll be facing Devin Booker and the orange hot Phoenix Suns in the Summer League title game tonight around 9PM Eastern. A game where I again expect Anderson to play great.
More importantly however for the Spurs, on paper, Anderson is the second string Small Forward for the team. A position that the Spurs are currently very weak at, besides reigning Defensive player of the year, Kawhi Leonard of course. The Spurs now gain a more improved Kyle Anderson, who could be a great fit coming off the bench for Kawhi.
And just when you think the Spurs are already good enough with the addition of LaMarcus Aldridge, and re-signings of Danny Green, and Kawhi Leonard, they get better with more depth in yet another area. So here’s a look at what the Spurs are currently looking at for next season.
Point Guards – Tony Parker, Patty Mills, Ray McCallum
Shooting Guards – Danny Green, Manu Ginobili, Jonathan Simmons
Small Forwards – Kawhi Leonard, Kyle Anderson
Power Forwards/Centers – LaMarcus Aldridge, Tim Duncan, Boris Diaw, David West, Boban Marjanovic, Matt Bonner
So with an already good team, by Kyle Anderson improving over the course of the Summer, the Spurs get even better heading into next season.
