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.
