Memphis extended the four-year, $37.2MM offer on Friday, so the clock is winding down on San Antonio’s 48-hour time frame to match the deal. The Spurs have luxury tax concerns, and Anderson’s starting salary could push them to the brink of the tax. The offer sheet also includes a 15% trade kicker.
An injury to Kawhi Leonard created an opportunity for Anderson, who responded with the best season of his four-year career. He appeared in 74 games this year, starting 67, and averaged 7.9 points while establishing himself as a force on defense.
