Anderson was the 54th pick, taken in the second round of the 1996 draft.

Anderson played 197 games over three seasons with the Jazz and was a key contributor off the bench for the two Utah teams that made the NBA Finals before leaving via free agency.

Anderson played seven more seasons in the NBA with the Houston Rockets, New York Knicks and Miami Heat.

Anderson’s best statistical season came as a member of the Houston Rockets. He averaged 12.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.2 steals a night while starting 81 games in 1999-2000.

This article could have at least given an honorable mention to the 1979 draft pick (Paul Dawkins) who made the team while the #1 pick that year (Larry Knight) was waived and never saw the court. Dawkins was a 10th round pick and probably the only player ever taken in that round to ever make an NBA team. He had a productive rookie year on a poor Jazz team. Also there were other noteworthy low picks such as Greg Deane out of the Universty of Utah who made the team and contributed.
