2014 NBA Draft: Spurs get an A- for picking Kyle Anderson at No. 30
With the No. 30 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, the San Antonio Spurs selected Kyle Anderson out of UCLA.
The 6-9, 230-pound Anderson averaged 14.6 points and 8.8 rebounds per game in 2013-14 for the Bruins, who finished 28-9 and lost to Florida in the Sweet 16.

Of course the Spurs took the guy everybody's been comparing to Boris Diaw. The differences between him and Diaw, though, are that Anderson is not as strong or as good of a shooter and was never asked to set screens in college. He is a heady player, though, and San Antonio is the best environment you could possibly envision for him.
Three UCLA players went in the first round, as Zach LaVine and Jordan Adams went earlier.
