Hawks To Sign James Anderson

On Friday night, Danny Green tweeted congratulations to former Spurs teammate James Anderson on his "new deal with Atlanta." According to Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the Hawks have indeed invited Anderson to join the team's camp, as confirmed by GM Danny Ferry. Based on Green's tweet, it seems Anderson has accepted the offer.

According to Cunningham, Anderson is likely to be signed to a summer contract, and figures to receive a non-guaranteed deal for 2012/13 with a strong camp. Anderson's numbers in his two seasons with San Antonio were hardly eye-opening (3.7 PPG in 11.5 MPG in 77 contests), but the 6'6" wing was a standout scorer at Oklahoma State, and is still just 23 years old. If his contract with Atlanta is non-guaranteed and for the minimum salary, it could be a nice bargain for Ferry and the Hawks.

Even after adding Anderson, the Hawks will still have room to add at least one more player before camp begins. Assuming Anderson and second-round pick Mike Scott, whose signing has yet to be announced, are on board, Atlanta would have 14 players under contract.
