In which was seemed like a surprising move at first, the 76ers waived guard James Anderson yesterday. Anderson started 60 games and played in all 82 for the struggling Sixers. The 6-foot-6 guard averaged 10.1 points per game shooting 43 percent from the floor and 33 percent from deep. While he wasn’t overly affective, most thought the 76ers would keep him around, just to fill a role at two guard. With the reports about Avery Bradley coming out, maybe that’s the direction the 76ers are heading to fill the spot at two guard.
Anderson failed to shoot a good percentage from deep, which is what he was brought in to do. This might be a reason why the 76ers are choosing to go in a different direction. Well, it looks like the 76ers will be looking for a shooting guard in free agency, so keep your eyes pealed for more.
