Former MSU teammates Kelvin Torbert and Chris Hill also will try to make teams this summer. Torbert will try to catch on with the Chicago Bulls or Toronto Raptors, and Hill with the San Antonio Spurs.
Anderson will head to Charlotte next week for a minicamp. He will then play on Charlotte's summer league team July 15-22 in Salt Lake City, Utah. If he impresses the Charlotte hierarchy, the Bobcats could produce a contract offer this summer.
If that doesn't happen, then Anderson likely will be invited back in the fall to try and make the team during their pre-season camp. If Anderson stays with the Bobcats, he likely would be signed for the league minimum, which will be close to $400,000 a year under the new collective bargaining agreement.
Torbert leaves for Chicago Bulls' minicamp today. The Toronto Raptors, are also interested in giving Torbert a tryout, and have assured him of a spot on their summer league team, which plays in Los Angeles starting July 8. However, if things go well with the Bulls, Torbert will likely stay with Chicago and play on their summer league team starting July 6 in Las Vegas.
Hill will join the Spurs minicamp July 10, where he'll be one of 10 players vying for five spots on the summer league team of the defending NBA champions.
