Anthony Bennett


LINK

It's an extremely short article and its Greg Anthony thoughts on Anthony Bennett so take it with a grain of salt BUT I think its interesting to note and look at because many Pelican fans have forgotten about Bennett because he's a bit of a tweener and the consensus is he leans towards PF. He could be slipping down the draft boards due to a recent injury but I can remember a few months ago when Bennett was projected in the top 3 (mostly due to the sporadic nature of this draft class).

Big physical guy, can shoot, rebound, etc I think we should keep this guy in the mix as a potential draft pick as a SF


Sorry for run on sentences

re: Anthony Bennett


I just don't think he has the ability to guard good NBA perimeter players.

With that said, in the NBA Draft you take the best player available.

Maybe he becomes a player the organization can bring off the bench and play with Anthony Davis in spurts and crunch time as the team's winning time frontcourt.

Of course, that means eventually moving Anderson.

re: Anthony Bennett


He's a great player, no doubt, but I dont think he would be a great fit at SF for us. He can shoot, but hes not a great ball handler or passer for a wing player. And he wouldnt be able to defend quick SF's.

It seems like these SF/PF tweeners are becoming a slight risk in the draft which causes them to drop in the draft board. He's a top5 talent in this draft though.
