The San Antonio Spurs have announced that they have exercised their third-year option on Kyle Anderson for the 2016-17 season. Anderson, who was originally drafted by the Spurs as the 30th pick in the first round back in 2014, rarely saw the floor last season, only playing in 32 games averaging a shade over two in both points and rebounds. However, he managed to average 21.3 points along with 8.7 rebounds, and 4.8 assists in 16 games with the Spurs' D-League affiliate, the Austin Spurs.

Kyle was also recently named the MVP of the 2015 NBA Summer League where he averaged 21 points, six rebounds, and almost two assists over seven games, leading the team to win the 2015 Las Vegas Summer League Championship. Anderson has the Spurs' mindset and could be a valuable asset to the team in the near future, as he continues to improve his game.
