Report: Hawks to hold workout with UCLA forward Kyle Anderson

Streeter Lecka

The Atlanta Hawks will reportedly hold a workout with UCLA forward Kyle Anderson on Thursday.

Throughout the NBA Draft process, the Atlanta Hawks will invariably find themselves linked to various players that would fill perceived roster needs. Whether those players are "sent" to Atlanta in different mock drafts in largely irrelevant, but when it comes to actual reports that place certain players in individual workouts with the team, smoke begins to turn to fire. In that vein, the Hawks will reportedly hold a workout with UCLA forward Kyle Anderson later this week.

The 6-foot-9 Anderson is incredibly versatile, with the perceived ability to play both forward positions in the NBA. At this moment, he is being projected to various teams with picks in the 20's by the leading mock draft outlets, but throughout the process to this point, Anderson has been seen as a player who could make a lottery run if a team falls in love with his interesting skill set.

From Atlanta's standpoint, Anderson would be an interesting fit. Despite putting up very nice numbers at UCLA (14.6 points, 8.8 rebounds, 6.5 assists per game), there are real questions about Anderson's athleticism in the league, and defensively, he certainly wouldn't help solve the issues on the wing behind DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver. Offensively, Anderson is incredibly skilled, especially as a passer at his size, but his foot speed leaves a lot to be desired and he has always operated with the ball in his hands at the college level.

Rest assured, there will be plenty of players linked with the Hawks via private workouts, but with Anderson reportedly visiting this week, there would seemingly be some mild interest on Atlanta's end.
