HoopsHype Ron Anderson Jr rumors

July 13, 2013 Updates

Oklahoma City's summer team is stacked with post players, notably 7-footer Steven Adams, the 12th overall pick in the 2013 draft from Pittsburgh, in addition to Andre Roberson, the 26th overall selection acquired from Minnesota, and Grant Jerrett, the 40th overall pick, who was acquired from Portland. Yet, Anderson remained confident in his worth. "I've always been into being the bruiser on the team, doing the dirty work, sticking my nose in the paint on every play and trying to get offensive rebounds and being able to branch out and hit that 15-foot jumper on more of a consistent basis," he said.

Anderson's father, Ron Anderson Sr., played 10 seasons in the NBA for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Indiana Pacers, Philadelphia 76ers, New Jersey Nets and Washington Bullets, and he scored 7,056 career points. Before he traveled to Orlando, his father told him to seize every opportunity and "to go out there and leave it all on the floor." "Nothing tomorrow is promised," Anderson Jr. said. Tampa Tribune
