Free agent James Anderson has been invited to the Atlanta Hawks' veterans camp. Hawks general manager Danny Ferry is looking for a defensive minded guard and thinks that Anderson could fill that void. Ferry is also looking for someone to replace departed guard Joe Johnson, so Anderson could fill that void as well.
Last season for the San Antonio Spurs, Anderson started two games and played in 51, averaging 3.7 points, 1.5 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game. In his two years in the NBA he's only hit .380 of his field goals so he has room to improve.
Anderson was drafted in the first round by the Spurs in 2010 after playing his college basketball for the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
