The Atlanta Hawks are rumored to have signed San Antonio Spurs wingman James Anderson, based off of a cryptic Tweet from (possibly now former) teammate Danny Green:

@25_anderson out for the new deal with Atlanta...Congrats man! Bright future ahead
SB Nation Hawks blog Peachtree Hoops has reached out to Atlanta management to try and get a confirmation, but there's no official word from either club yet. Anderson, the 20th pick of the 2010 NBA Draft, has been considered a bust with San Antonio, averaging only 3.7 points a game and 11.5 minutes. However, Peachtree Hoops points out that it's a low-risk investment for the retooling Hawks:
...the short of it is that Anderson, the 20th pick of the 2010 draft, never could make it happen for the Spurs and subsequently saw only 11 minutes per game each of his two seasons in San Antonio. Therefore, his stat sample is weak and the stats he did put up aren't pretty. From the looks of it, he couldn't make a shot consistently and followed that up by having poor defensive efficiency when he was on the floor.
