    Default Anthony Bennett = Best player in this draft and ROY

    Book it.

    6'7 240+
    7'1 Wingspan
    Freakishly strong and explosive
    Great jumpshot out to the 3 (38%)
    Handles the ball like a 3, body of a 4
    Fantastic rebounder

    Only weakness is his D but the tools are there to be solid on that end.

    This guy is pretty much a guaranteed 20/10 threat every night, and could be a superstar next to a defensive center. Especially if Charlotte gets him at #4 as he would be their #1 option right off the bat.

    Freshman year stats:
    16/8 on 52% in only 27 mins per while playing through a shoulder injury and having entire defenses built around stopping him.

    Millsap would have a decent chance of being the best in this draft.

    I see more Larry Johnson/Melo in him

    He will be a good player for the Wizards.

    He's a PF IMO. He's very intriguing, could very well turn out to be the best player in his class as it seems pretty wide open.

    I don't like tweener players like him. He's undersized to play PF, gets lost on defense & I don't think hes a good enough rebounder to be a 20/10 guy in the NBA. He's too slow to play SF in the NBA.

    He does have a good power game & can hit corner threes & mid range jumpers. Has a good shooting form too. I can see him being ROY but idk about living up to those numbers.

    Interesting player who usually looked like a man vs boys in college action.

    The challenge is going to be to get him to play some semblance of defense, at which he appears truly disinterested, and to work within a team concept. He was a black hole in college, and unless you're really special that doesn't play well in the NBA.

    I tend to be leery of the "has the tools" to play D label. If he really did, his physical dominance would have made D childs play in college. It's a lot of commitment and effort, and that seemed lacking at that end of the floor.He didn't even work for decent defensive position in the games in which I saw him.

    Offensively, not much to dislike. Powerful and skilled. Smooth for his size.

    I prefer Bennett as a PF so he'd fit really well with MKG actually.

    Kemba/Henderson/MKG/Bennett/?

    Get a decent center and they might have a future

    He was a man against boys in college. Did you see the teams he played?

    I actually like this because MGK isn't much of a shooter & Bennett can step out and make up for that.

    Did you read the rest of the post or are you one of those posters who cherry picks one line to try and make yourself look and feel smart?

    If he steps out, then who gets the boards? they would already be terribly undersized at the pg and pf. That lineup doesnt impress me in the least. We are assuming bennett is going to come in the L and just pile up points.. thats a lot to ask.

    So you're worried about their offensive rebounding? Bennett/MKG should both be solid rebounders, not sure about their C spot. Is Mullens the long-term
    answer there? He'd also fit in Washington.
