Anthony Bennett (BKN) – “AB”
Power Forward: 6’8, 245 lbs; 4th year, UNLV | Career: 4.3 points/game, 3 rebounds/game, 39% FG
A former #1 overall pick in 2013, Canadian Anthony Bennett is already at a career crossroads; compared to fellow UNLV Runnin’ Rebel Larry Johnson, Bennett is a matchup problem, inside-out four man when in shape and inspired – or that’s what we’ve been told – AB desperately needs to find his niche as a scorer: is he a faceup guy or stretch four?; jumper needs work – AB does not have a true NBA position, has difficulty defending quicker forwards; running out of chances* in the league? – can new coach Kenny Atkinson help AB unlock a bit of his potential? – there’s less pressure to produce in BKN, Bennett can fly under the radar while discovering his basketball self
*can he develop into a stronger rebounder to earn minutes til his shot’s more respectable?
