Spurs take Oklahoma State’s Anderson at No. 20
SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Spurs have selected Oklahoma State guard James Anderson with the 20th overall pick in the NBA draft.
The Big 12 player of the year averaged 22.3 points and 5.8 rebounds for the Cowboys as a junior.
It was the highest pick for the Spurs since drafting Tim Duncan first overall in 1997.
San Antonio has lately plucked good players late in the draft. The Spurs took George Hill with the 26th pick in 2008, and grabbed DeJuan Blair at No. 37 a year ago.
The Spurs also have the 49th pick.
