ESPN is counting down the best players in the NBA from 500-1. The Atlanta Hawks most recent offseason pickup James Anderson ranks 424 on the list.

While there hasn’t been any official confirmation from the Hawks organization regarding the transaction of Anderson, former San Antonio Spurs teammate Danny Green was the first to break the news on the potential transaction:

“Got to show love n shout my guy @25_Anderson out for the new deal with Atlanta…Congrats man! Bright future ahead,” Green tweeted on Friday.

Drafted by the Spurs with the 20th overall selection in 2010, Anderson has only started four of the 77 games he’s played in. His NBA career has yet to take off the way most people thought, maybe that’s why Anderson’s 2012 ranking plummeted 78 spots from last year’s 346 ranking.

The 6’6” wingman from Oklahoma State has career averages of 3.7 points, 0.8 assists, and 1.3 rebounds in 11.5 minutes per game. He also posts a 38 percent shooting percentage.
