2013 NBA Draft: Cleveland Cavaliers Select Anthony Bennett With No. 1 Pick
Position: Power Forward
About the Prospect: After one season at the collegiate level, Anthony Bennett is making the move to the NBA ranks. His decision really comes as no true shock, given his potential and upside. At 6-foot-7, Bennett is a banger and a bit undersize for the power forward position. However, he’s very skilled and he showcased his ability to provide and instant impact this past year at UNLV. Bennett has the potential to be a great front court compliment at the NBA level and he should have a solid career at the next level.
About His Impact on Team:
The Cavaliers could have gone numerous directions with this pick, but with their young team–selecting Bennett was a solid pick. This is a player that knows how to stretch the court and shoot the ball–so it will be interesting to see what type of impact he makes during his rookie season.
Cleveland has a young team on the rise with plenty of potential and it may seem like a shock to go with a player like Bennett at No. 1, but if he can make an impact as quickly as he did at UNLV–he’ll be just fine during his rookie season.
