SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The San Antonio Spurs selected small forward Kyle Anderson of UCLA with its first-round pick Thursday, the 30th selection of the NBA draft.
Anderson, who left the Bruins after his sophomore season, averaged 14.6 points, 8.8 rebounds and 6.5 assists. The 6-foot-9 forward is considered one of the draft's top passing big men, which is optimal for the Spurs.
His place with San Antonio could be impacted by the free-agency plans of Boris Diaw, the 6-9 forward whose passing helped sparked the Spurs' five-game victory over the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals.
San Antonio also had the 58th and 60th selections in the second round.
