In fact, I don't think he is on the current roster, didn't his contract expire? I don't know if this has been addressed in other posts. Here is my 2 cents...Anderson was drafted while he was hurt. Once he was well and got some time on the floor, he was dropping 3's and looking like another 'steal of the draft'. Then he was injured again. Stepping in to take his minutes was Gary Neal, who filled in very well. So well that by the time JA returned, Neal had the minutes and the trust of the staff.
James handled his demotion with class; he sat on the bench, cheered his teammates and said all the right things when asked. When he did get on the floor, it looked like he was trying too hard. He didn’t seem like he was comfortable. He did look OK at that Dallas game, but even then, he clanked some dunks, drove into traffic and was hurried in everything he did.
The Spurs declined to keep James on the squad. I think this could be a good thing for him. James has talent, but he wouldn’t be able to show it as he rode the pine. I think the Spurs see it too. That is why they have showcased him in the first couple of games in the summer league. The Spurs will make no money off of James signing with another team. The Spurs were allowing Anderson to show he has talent; that he is a team player. The other coaches also see what the Spurs are doing and why.
This is my opinion, have you seen something else? ??
