Justin Anderson scored six points on 2-of-9 shooting with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 32 minutes off the bench on Friday.
Anderson still needs to take a Jae Crowder-like leap statistically but he has similar attributes to make that happen. The Mavs give him a great opportunity to do that but things might be rocky until the team stabilizes around whatever style it is going to end up playing. A lot of that comes down to which veterans stay healthy, if any. Anderson is just a stash and he’s not a must-stash guy, but owners need to find him quickly if he heats up.
