Would you take the chance to play in a top Euroleague team and win the competition or you prefer to return to NBA? James Anderson: “I would like to go back to NBA but if there are not good options over there then definitely I would like to stay in Europe and play for a top Euroleague team”.
RealGM: Taking you back to the NBA, how did it feel to be a part of the tanking situation with the 76ers? On one hand, you get plenty of playing time and a chance to show yourself, but on the other, the team is not competitive and you have to lose on a daily basis. James Anderson: With the players and the coaches, we had the same mindset all year. Who likes to lose? We were not going out and trying to lose on purpose. We had a lot of close games actually that we should have won. It was the same mindset; our coach [Brett] Brown did a great job of keeping everybody together and keep the locker room close. Everybody continued to improve. We just could not get over the hump for a while. It was tough but it was not a mindset of trying to lose.
RealGM: Do you see yourself playing in Europe in upcoming years? James Anderson: Depends on different situations that I have in front of me after the season. I see what situation is best for me and my family and I go that way. I would not mind playing for Euroleague title as basketball here in Europe is as good as it is in the States. The competition here is way better and more skillful that I thought it was before I got here. Once I got here, I was really surprised of the skill level.
RealGM: After that, how did you end up signing with Zalgiris last offseason? James Anderson: Just looked at the pros and cons, different situations and I thought it was the best decision to come over here. I wanted to get adjusted to European life, get my name out there in Europe and play for a good organization. Once they presented me an opportunity, I felt comfortable, weighed pros and cons and went here.
Lithuanian League champion Zalgiris Kaunas added some firepower on the perimeter by signing swingman James Anderson to a one-year contract on Tuesday. Anderson (1.98 meters, 25 years old) arrives from Philadelphia of the NBA to make his pro debut in Europe.
Zalgiris Kaunas started Tuesday with a great announcement as former Sixer James Anderson signed a one year deal with the team. The player was rumored to be also in Panathinaikos’ radar, however the Lithuanians moved faster and secured his services for next season in the LKL and Euroleague.

Turner isn’t the only one who has changed. Big man Lavoy Allen has dropped 14 pounds and almost 3 percent body fat. Guard James Anderson has lost 11 pounds and almost 3 percent body fat.

Injured guard Jason Richardson has dropped 11 pounds despite not being expected to play until late January or February. Injured big man Arnett Moultrie has lost five pounds and probably won’t play until at least January.
The 76ers claimed former Houston Rockets James Anderson and Tim Ohlbrecht off waivers, general manager Sam Hinkie confirmed. The Rockets placed Ohlbrecht, a 6-foot-11 center, and Anderson, a 6-6 shooting guard, on waivers on Saturday.
Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced today that the team has signed guard/forward James Anderson to a multi-year deal. To make room on the roster, the Rockets have released guard Daequan Cook. Anderson (6-6, 215, Oklahoma State), who actually began the 2012-13 season with Rio Grande Valley, was re-signed by San Antonio on Nov. 21, 2012. In 10 games this season with the Spurs, Anderson averaged 3.4 points and 1.4 rebounds in 9.4 minutes per outing. He tallied a season-high nine points, four rebounds and three assists in 20 minutes at Miami(11/29/12). Anderson was waived by the Spurs on Dec. 20, 2012.
The Wolves had former San Antonio forward James Anderson and former NBA forward Joey Graham in for workouts Wednesday in their search for a defensive-minded swingman to replace injured and waived Josh Howard.
Waiving Howard creates an open roster spot for a small forward who can defend. The options include signing swingman James Anderson, cut just Thursday by San Antonio, or a veteran sitting at home such as Michael Redd, who has had knee problems of his own; pulling a wing player such as Chris Douglas-Roberts or Coby Karl, who played on the Wolves’ summer league team, from the Development League; or trading for a player such as Raja Bell, who is sitting home in exile from Utah.
