Anderson was waived in the offseason following uninspiring averages of 3.7 points, 1.3 rebounds, 0.8 assists and 38 percent shooting in two seasons.
Anderson was picked up from the scrap heap by the Atlanta Hawks. After failing to impress the Hawks brass, the Oklahoma State product was waived on Oct. 27, just days prior to the regular season opener.
If Anderson is indeed added to the roster, he will inherit a spot that is currently uninhabited by his main competition. Forwards Kawhi Leonard (quadriceps tendinitis) and Stephen Jackson (fractured finger) are both sidelined with injuries.
