Default Timberwolves make Anthony Bennett available in trade

Quote:
The Minnesota Timberwolves have made former No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett available via trade in advance of Thursday's NBA draft, according to league sources.

Sources told ESPN that the Timberwolves, who are widely expected to make Kentucky's Karl-Anthony Towns the No. 1 overall selection Thursday night, are trying to find a new home via trade from Bennett, who unexpectedly went No. 1 overall in 2013 and was acquired by Minnesota last summer from Cleveland in the Kevin Love trade.

This dude is hot garbage. Good luck getting rid of him.

3rd potential team in 2 years. I can't really see suitor for him when he doesn't excel at anything and had weight issues.

He should try to model his game after Draymond Green.

It would help him to go to a team that will play him consistent minutes. Not sure what team that would be.

As of right now, it is really hard to see if he will be a "player" or not. Just hasn't really been given a chance yet (some of that is his own fault). But just going by basically 1 year (rookie year) isn't much of a judge.

Would it be crazy to say he should go to the Knicks ?

I remember Melo trying to help him out with some advice during his rookie year. That is off course, if the Knicks want to throw another season and let Bennett got all the minutes he wants.

He's way to slow to switch onto wings like Draymond does defensively, plus he's a complete and total beta, biggest in the league probably, while Green is about to get a max deal in no small part because of his attitude.

I wonder what sort of package it would take to get him though, he's got some talent in there somewhere I have to think.

His contract and Adrian Payne's quick development are probably the main reasons for him being on the market.

People that think he's a scrub DEFIANTLY has never watched him play.

Don't try to make an excuse about him not being deserving of the number one overall pick, he'll have a good career in the league.

Literally nobody said that. Everyone compared him to Larry Johnson. He went away from the three ball last season (as a request from his coach) and looked more like Brandon Bass than anyone else.

Can a twolves fan chime in on why this guy gets zero minutes even though the team isn't winning? He seems to have a lot of physical talent. He's big and strong. Can jump. Dunks with authority. Can put the ball on the floor and hit the midrange.

Yet he barely plays. Is it his attitude? I don't get why they don't try to build this guy up for the future.

Because he's a fat trashcan on defense.

If it weren't for his 5M/year contract, I'd say the Lakers should take their chances on him. They've tried their hand at Wes Johnson, Xavier Henry, Ed Davis, Jordan Hill (all picks with high potential that never panned out). Albeit none of them worked out well, but I can't help but feel bad for AB
