Antonio Anderson filed paperwork making himself eligible for this years draft, the player informed DraftExpress Jonathan Givony today. I sent my letter in today
Ill be entering the draft without an agent, Anderson told us. Ill be trying to learn as much as I can, and try to see where Im at and what teams think of me.
Anderson filed the paperwork with Memphis coach John Caliparis blessing. He knows that Im entering, and supports me 100%, Anderson said. I would definitely like to go to the NBA pre-draft camp and see where this process takes me. He said its too early to say where he would have to be drafted in order to keep his name in.
Anderson, an athletic 6-6 guard with strong playmaking skills and lock-down defensive ability, is currently projected as a mid-2nd round pick by two NBA teams we spoke to this evening. One scout likened him to a poor mans Andre Iguodala
. They like his versatility being able to guard and play multiple positions, as well as his excellent 2.62/1 assist to turnover ratio, but will scrutinize his jump-shot and overall scoring ability during workouts and the pre-draft camp. Anderson will turn 23 in June.
