The Las Vegas Summer League isn’t quite over yet, with the San Antonio Spurs and Phoenix Suns set to do battle on Monday night for the championship. However, the MVP award has been handed out already, with the Spurs’ Kyle Anderson earning the honor.
After a rather underwhelming showing in the Utah Summer League, Anderson has shined by leading San Antonio to the title game in Vegas. He’s second in the league in scoring at 22 points per game on 45.8 percent shooting. He’s also averaging 5.8 rebounds 1.5 assists, 1.3 steals and a block in 26.5 minutes per game.
Anderson, the 30th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, didn’t play much with the Spurs last season and likely won’t be a big contributor next year considering all the talent in place. But seeing the youngster excel in Summer League this year is positive for his development, and perhaps he works his way into the rotation.
