NBA Rumors: Anthony Bennet may have fallen out of lottery if Cavs didn’t select him No. 1 overall


The Cleveland Cavaliers are getting it piled on today after Yahoo! Sports guru Adrian Wojnarowski Woj-bombed the living daylights out of the team with his scathing expose of how terrible things really are. Firing Chris Grant seems to be just the start of the Cavs problems as the team is in utter turmoil and it all starts at the top.

In addition to making outrageous trades in his final days as general manager, Grant will be best remembered for drafting Anthony Bennett No. 1 overall in 2013, a move that signaled the beginning of the end for him and for the Cavs 2013-14 season.

According to Wojnarowski, had the Cavs not selected Anthony Bennett No. 1 overall, he likely would have fallen out of the top-10 and may have even dropped out of the lottery altogether. In fact, Bennet’s camp was so convinced that he was not a top pick that they were calling teams at the back of the lottery to try and secure a landing spot.

 If Cleveland hadn’t selected Bennett with the No. 1 overall pick, there was a strong chance that he would’ve dropped to the back end of the top 10 – or even further. Within hours of the draft, Bennett’s agents were calling teams further back in the draft lottery, trying to secure a landing spot for him. Only the Cavs surprised everyone, selecting Bennett

And you thought your front office was bad, every team who has ever complained about having a bad front office. It’s just a terrible day to be a Cleveland sports fan as not only is NFL guru Peter King exposing the Browns front office as a complete zoo, but Wojnarowski has destroyed whatever glimmer of hope fans had that the basketball team is any better off.

    He looked very good last night! I’m not saying he changed everyones thinking, but he may be starting to get it and I hopeit wasn’t a mirage!! No doubt he should not have been the top pick in the draft, but I hope he is starting to show he wasn’t a complete waste of a pick!! Two good games in a two week period?
