Articles about Anthony Roberson

October 1, 2010

Roberson is a veteran of several teams, including the Bulls, Grizzlies and Knicks. He's a shooting specialist in the mold of someone like Eddie House, who really does very little else but shoot jumpshots, and who doesn't always have the best discipline as to when to do so. Playing in France with Strasbourg last season, Roberson averaged 18.5 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.0 assists in only 28 minutes per game, taking 9 threes a game in that time and hitting hem at a 41% clip.

- Anthony Roberson

The Bulls waived Roberson after the completion of their summer league campaign last year, thoroughly unimpressed with his shot selection in the tournament. Roberson then made it to the Clippers for training camp to battle for their open guard spot, but lost out to Kareem Rush.

He also averages only 2.2 rpg and 1.0 apg, but this is Anthony Roberson we're talking about. He's going to shoot. Roberson takes over 9 three pointers a game, a justifiable decision when viewed alongside his 42% conversion rate, but he still does nothing other than shoot. If you were expecting some kind of reformation into a post defender or something, you're very ambitious.
