Is the Russian coming over this year?
The word is, yes he is. He's only 19, though. I think he was maybe the youngest player in the draft. Definitely one of them. I doubt he gets a ton of minutes right off the bat.

Dion is definitely the starter. Ellington will likely be the backup at the 2. We also drafted this Carrick Felix kid from Arizona State. We'll see how he develops.

My first thought when the Bennett pick was made that they must be turning him into a SF, but that does not appear to be the case. I think they just thought he was the best talent in the draft and decided to roll with it regardless of position. Hard to argue with that philosophy.

I still think he'd play around 30mins per no? I'd rather play Bennett out of position than use Gee all game.

Yeap imo as the season goes on I will be shocked it they don't, maybe to start off with they might do that. I could also maybe see them using Bennett as there microwave guy off the bench and letting him just go to work when the better players like Dion/Kyrie are chilling on the bench.

Let's compare/contrast this thread with the Anthony Davis "bust" thread

(Thankfully my prediction was vague and conditional enough We still don't know who he'll turn out, but it's not looking good that's for sure)

yup...

I've said it before and i'll say it again. Bennett's problems were all between his ears. That guy had severe confidence issues.

If it's one thing the 2013 draft taught us it's to respect international comptetition.

Gobert and Giannis hands down the best players from that draft and would probably be picks 1 and 2 in a hindsight draft.

He's going to have a better rookie year than Noel but i think Len's ceiling is a mediocre starting center. Cody Zeller and Steven Adams both have a decent chance of turning out to be the better prospect than Len.
spot on

Bennett was a bench-warmer with Fenerbahçe last season as well. He did win Euroleauge champion with the team though.

This is just sadly unfortunate.

Was it the pressure of being the #1 pick or does he just suck? What I mean is, obviously he isn't good enough to be an NBA player right now...but could he have become if his confidence wasn't shaking at the pressure of having to turn around the Cavs? Prob not Kwame Brown was still gonna suck, but he had some serviceable years and was at least good defensively at times.
