From the latest press release of the San Antonio Spurs:

The San Antonio Spurs today announced that they have signed James Anderson of the NBA D-League’s Rio Grande Valley Vipers. Anderson is the second NBA D-League GATORADE call-up of the season.

Anderson participated in training camp with the Atlanta Hawks this past October before signing with the D-League. He appeared in six preseason games in Atlanta and averaged 2.0 points in 10.7 minutes.

The Spurs drafted James Anderson in 2010 with the 20th overall pick. He played a total of 77 games with the Spurs in his two years there, averaging 3.7 points and 1.3 rebounds for them. Anderson then signed with the Atlanta Hawks in the offseason and was waived by them in the preseason. He has played with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the D-League in the last few weeks before he got the call from San Antonio.

Anderson will be suiting up for the Spurs against the Boston Celtics later on tonight.
