Sean Elliot is a big Kyle Anderson fan
It’s not often Elliott jumps for joy during the NBA draft, but that’s what happened when the Spurs picked Kyle Anderson in the first round in June.
Elliott said he watched Anderson a few times during his last season at UCLA and was impressed.
Anderson is coming off his first Summer League stint with the Spurs in Las Vegas, where he started six games, averaging 8.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists.
“I keep telling everybody around me that we got the steal of the draft in Kyle Anderson,” Elliott said. “He’s a terrific player. I saw him play three times last year in college, and he fits (the Spurs) system perfectly. He’s a 6-9 poor man’s Magic Johnson.”
