2013 NBA Draft Prospect Profile Video: Anthony Bennett, UNLV (PF)
Anthony Bennett was highly recruited coming out of high school, but the 6-foot-7 forward made the decision to attend UNLV over the likes of some of the top collegiate programs in the country.
Bennett, who is an original native of Ontario, Canada, attended Findlay Prep in Nevada during his time at the high school level, so his decision to attend UNLV was simply based on that “close to home” feel.
Well, that’s all about to change because there is no NBA franchise located in Nevada and Bennett is a sure-fired lottery selection here in 2013. After one season in which he averaged 16.1 points and 8.1 rebounds per game, Bennett is making the switch to the professional ranks, entering his name within the 2013 NBA Draft pool.
Bennett is an on-the-rise prospect who can be a handful inside given his size and physicality. Look for him to hear his name called within the top five of this year’s draft, but at worst case scenario, there’s no way Bennett slips outside of the top ten here in 2013.
