During this year’s NBA Summer League, 6’9 forward Kyle Anderson has been lighting it up on the court for the San Antonio Spurs. He is elevating his game to a whole new level and has produced some heavy numbers for the team.
Yesterday’s game against the Portland Trailblazers he scored 19 points with 4 rebounds. The last two games he scored 22 points with 5 rebounds and 23 points with 5 rebounds to add to his plate.

It seems like Anderson is getting his rhythm in place and now everyone should wonder if he will be part of the regular rotation in the Spurs line up. When we mean regular rotation, we don’t mean filling in for a player who is hurt and will be out for several weeks. We are talking about being in the lineup which includes Tim Duncan, Danny Green or even LaMarcus Aldridge a little bit more.
Kyle Anderson has the potential to increase his style of play each and every day. His game can carry him to a place where he feels he will be ready to get down on the court and to be included in crunch time decisions. As he continues to develop his game in the summer league will allow him to play hard, fight hard and win games during the summer. Last season Anderson had some time in the D-League with the Austin Toros and he improved on all sorts of levels with his game.
Now that a new season is just around the corner, Anderson will need to show the Spurs organization why he is ready to be a regular in the lineup rotation and by the looks of things, he is already showing what he has to offer, by the excellent job he is doing this summer.
