Bennett right now is exclusively an offensive talent. He isn't good defensively and, more importantly, seems not to care much about defense at this stage.
Kawhi has a ridiculous amount of "street hunger" to use a phrase from a few years ago. I don't see that in Bennett, though he is a talented offensive player.
i think kawhis position was a pretty big question mark coming out of college. he played power forward in college, was a beast on the boards, and didnt show much perimeter ability. he just had a great body and athleticism for a sf
bennett seems like the exact opposite. he might have the skillset to play sf, but probably not the athleticism (in terms of quickness)
