With the eighth overall pick in the 1996 GAH draft, the Charlotte Hornets select guard Shandon Anderson from Georgia.
At 6'6" and 208 lbs, Anderson has great size for the two spot, although his skillset is a better fit at the three. One of the best college mid-range shooters, Anderson joins a Hornets team with a powerful inside game from Shawn Kemp and Dikembe Mutombo that needs perimeter help. Anderson may be a good fit in Charlotte.
