Chris breaks down the four-year Anderson experience in Memphis and gives his opinion on why he believes Anderson is good fit in Minnesota, whether that be next to Karl-Anthony Towns in the starting lineup or as a backup forward for the Wolves.
Additionally, Dane and Chris go back-and-forth about why Grizzlies’ backup point guard Tyus Jones ultimately chose to stay in Memphis rather than pursuing a free agent deal from Minnesota or elsewhere.
