• Despite being a fat boy, Bennett has a confirmed 39'' vertical.
• Kyrie Irving said he knew that Bennett was going to be drafted a week before the draft.
• He definitely will come off the bench, IMO if not all year the majority of the year. Coach Brown won't give him minutes if he doesn't learn how to consistently box out and get back on transition. This is a good thing IMO.
I am very high on Bennett. I think he is a future stud in the making. He won't get minutes for ROY this year, but in a few years i would not be surprised if he isn't a top 5 PF in the league.
has there been a number 1 draft pick that didn't start in his rookie season?
