The Cleveland Cavaliers, who held the top overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft had plenty of decisions to make in regards to who they’d select as their next hopeful franchise superstar.
From Victor Oladipo to Nerlens Noel to Otto Porter, the choices seemed aplenty. But when David Stern walked to the podium and announced the first overall pick, the crowd couldn’t help but gasp as Anthony Bennett’s name was unveiled as the No. 1 pick. It wasn’t that Bennett being selected in the top five was all that outlandish, but to be the top pick? Few expected that, possibly not even Bennett himself.
Many questioned the pick (understandably) and Anthony Bennett didn’t do much to help his cause as he ended up having one of the worst rookie seasons in NBA history. Now he’s set to be traded out with Andrew Wiggins, the No. 1 pick in the 2014 draft and it’s clear he’s had enough of his former team.
The trade can’t legally go through until next week though as far as Anthony Bennett is concerned, it’s a done deal as he’s removed all traces of the Cleveland Cavaliers existence on his social media pages.
Now, I’m guessing you probably weren’t spending much time on them anyway, but if you were, you’ve likely noticed the changes.
Littered with Cleveland Cavaliers logos, pictures and more, nearly all (sans a picture of him being drafted) items relating to the organization have vanished on his Instagram.
Looks like he’s pretty sure that he’ll be on the move (and also apparently loves Canada like no other).
