by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2014) It’s been an up and down season for 76ers guard James Anderson, and a five-point outing against the Kings Thursday night might mark the start of another downswing. Anderson logged only 17 minutes on his way to 2 of 4 shooting from the field.

He still managed to grab four rebounds, but had his bench play overshadowed by Tony Wroten’s 21 points off the pine. Since losing his role as a starter on December 1, Anderson is averaging 9.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists over a 15 game span.

James Anderson shooting poorly to start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/1/2013) 76ers guard James Anderson has started both of the team's games this season, but has yet to reach double figures in scoring. He put up just three points on 34 minutes Friday, in a 109-102 win over the Wizards.

James Anderson could step up for Sixers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2013) The 76ers are in full-on tank mode. Nobody really disputes this fact, after they traded their lone All-Star for an injured lottery pick this offseason. That leaves them devoid of talent in a lot of spots on the roster, and makes it hard for Fantasy owners to expect too much from them.

Of course, that lack of talent also leaves plenty of room for young players to step up if given the chance. There are still a lot minutes available, which means Fantasy owners cannot just ignore the rest of the roster beyond the first three or four players.

There isn't much talent there, but at the very least, big minutes at the shooting guard position are clearly up for grabs. It looks like James Anderson has a lock on the starting role, and he has shown some intriguing abilities in the preseason. He is averaging 11.4 points per game in just 23.6 minutes in the preseason, largely thanks to an 11 for 23 mark from three-point range in five games. 

The 24-year-old has shown the ability to be a decent three-point shooter in the past, albeit in mostly limited roles. Working off the ball in Philadelphia, he could be a decent contributor of 3-pointers this season at a cheap price. You won't want to target Anderson on Draft Day, but he could be worth keeping an eye on once waivers open up.


James Anderson hopes to start at shooting guard


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2013) Philadelphia 76ers guard James Anderson has been working out with his new team and hopes to start at shooting guard this season, the Bucks County Courier Times reports.
