Kyle Anderson apparently did something in his first workout that interested the Atlanta Hawks so much that they are bringing him back for a second time. SNY.tv's Adam Zagoria reports that the Hawks worked out Anderson on Thursday and will bring him back for another look at a later date that is yet to be determined. According to Anderson, his first workout went really well:

"It went really well," Anderson told SNY.tv. "I think I played as well as I could and I enjoyed it."

Anderson is a unique prospect in that at 6-9 he has the size of a power forward but is a capable ball handler and has experience initiating the offense like a point guard. That type of versatility is something that Danny Ferry could be intrigued for the Hawks with the No. 15 pick.

Anderson averaged 14.6 points, 8.8 rebounds and 6.5 assists for UCLA and was compared to Magic Johnson for his versatility by famed high school coach Bob Hurley whom he played for at St. Anthony.
