Is UCLA's Anderson a good fit for the Thunder? Published: March 25, 2014

Kyle Anderson has been sort of an enigma in his brief career at UCLA. Is he someone with a standout skill? Does his game translate to the NBA?

The 6-foot-9 point forward had Kevin Durant's endorsement a few years back and college basketball writer Matt Moore of thinks Anderson would be a perfect fit for the Thunder in the upcoming NBA Draft.

Says Moore: "Anderson has an NBA frame with good length and it shows in things like his extension over opponents on jumpers. He moves well in transition and can weave in and out of opponents. Everything I've seen from him makes me think he'd be a great fit in Oklahoma City."

Does KD's opinion hold weight? In 2011, Durant said Anderson was the best player in the country in the Class of 2012. That was a while back, but that's game recognizing game.

Anderson has averaged 14.7 points, 8.7 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game, and is shooting 49 percent from 3-point range this season as a sophomore. You can check him out on Thursday, as UCLA plays No. 1 seed Florida in the Sweet 16 at 7:45 p.m. (CBS).
