Anderson InterviewNew Raptor David Anderson thinks he’ll fit in
Doug Smith Sports Reporter - Reporter - Say what? who goofed I got to know
ISTANBUL, TURKEY-If you could construct the prototypical Raptors big man he’d be a versatile guy about seven feet tall who has some shooting range and doesn’t mind doing some hard banging in the paint.
Funnily enough, there was one spotted in the interview area of the Siman Erden Arena here Sunday and he can’t wait to get to Toronto.
David Andersen, whose Australia Boomers bowed out of the world basketball championships after being drubbed 87-58 by Slovenia, said he welcomed the trade that landed him with the Raptors from Houston for a protected future second-round pick.
“It was something I was looking forward to get a bit more chance to play, go to a new team, a new scenario and hopefully a different role,” he said. “I know it’s a European team, I know coach has different strategies and stuff so I’m looking forward to the new team and moving on to new things.”
