San Antonio Spurs 2014 Draft Report Card

By Jim Brighters, NBA Editor

Additions: Kyle Anderson (30)

Nemanja Dangubic (54)

(SportsNetwork.com) - Want to know why the San Antonio Spurs are always great? It's picks like Anderson.

He's incredibly versatile and you'll hear comparisons with Boris Diaw. After how well Diaw played in the Finals, especially as a facilitator, it's easy to want to see the comparison.

It also helps that the comparison is not far off. Anderson is a big point guard essentially, but there's more to his game. He can shoot and rebound, but couldn't defend a pre-schooler.

That'll improve under Gregg Popovich. He may not see a ton of minutes next season, but he will pay dividends for the Spurs somewhere down the line. It's a wonderful fit.

Grade: A-
