Karvel Anderson to work out for the Houston Rockets

After an impressive senior season, Anderson will get his shot.

Robert Morris shooting guard Karvel Anderson will get his shot at NBA glory.

Stephen Gertz broke the news this morning via twitter.


Anderson carried the Colonials in 2013-2014.
(Post Gazette)

The standout guard, who signed an agent a few weeks back, scored just over 19 points-per-game and shot over 51 percent from the field this season for the Colonials. He had a few memorable performances including an impressive display against St. John’s in the post season NIT in which he scored 38 points on 12-20 shooting.

The Rockets directly inquired about Anderson to his agent just a few days ago. After going through his scouting report, they offered Anderson a chance to workout in Houston. It should be noted that teams only get to bring a certain amount of players in for pre-draft workouts, so their interest in Anderson must be serious.

Anderson will hope to impress the Rockets, who hold the 42nd pick in this years NBA draft, but even if he is not selected, just getting on their radar could benefit him down the line. It should not be forgotten that the Rockets signed un-drafted rookie Troy Daniels just before the playoffs, and Daniels went on the have a great first round playoff series.

Anderson will likely be more on a point guard due to his size, but if he shoots to his capabilities, he will surely impress many scouts.


Good luck Karvel!
