Traded to Minnesota along with Andrew Wiggins in the Kevin Love deal, Bennett revealed a much improved (and healthier) looking frame this offseason and had surgery to correct a breaking problem that hampered him during his rookie campaign.
Has it all paid off? Apparently so as Anthony Bennett has been the ‘surprise’ of training camp for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
While Anthony Bennett got off to a woeful start with the Cavaliers last season he did have small stretches that showed why the franchise believed he was worthy of the No. 1 overall pick. The Minnesota Timberwolves may not need Bennett to ever be that good though so far the results have been encouraging.
In addition to playing well in camp Bennett had a very good Summer League so the reason for optimism regarding the former UNLV star is understood. Might the lack of pressure (which has shifted to Andrew Wiggins) help Anthony Bennett become the player so many had hoped for?
