Two days after reportedly losing Tony Parker to the Hornets, the Spurs now face the prospect of another key roster member leaving the franchise.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, San Antonio will decline to match the four-year offer sheet he signed with the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday (Saturday, PHL time):

The 24-year-old Anderson enjoyed a career season in 2017-18, averaging 7.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.6 steals in 26.7 minutes per contest. The Spurs made the former UCLA standout the final pick of the first round of the 2014 NBA Draft.

The Grizzlies, meanwhile, appear to be intent on injecting more youth into their roster after drafting 18-year-old Jaren Jackson Jr. fourth overall in this summer's draft.
