James Anderson, who was recently waived by the Spurs and worked out for the Timberwolves, is heading back to the D-League, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports (via Twitter). According to Wojnarowski, Anderson will sign with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, the Rockets' D-League affiliate.
It's not clear whether or not the Timberwolves are still interested in signing Anderson, but for the 23-year-old, there's little to lose by returning to the court in the D-League. Because no NBA team holds his rights, he's still essentially a free agent, so if the T-Wolves or another club wanted to sign him, there'd be nothing standing in the way.
Anderson, who appeared in 10 games for the Spurs this season, was on the Valley Vipers' roster during the D-League preseason, but was signed by San Antonio before the regular season got underway. The Wolves were eyeing the 2010 20th overall pick as one candidate to replace the injured Josh Howard on the wing.
