Former First Overall Pick Cut

Bennett gets Cut from Turkish Club

Anthony Bennett Gets Released From Pro Turkish Club

After experiencing a fair bit of success at UNLV, things haven’t gone nearly as well as former 2013 first overall pick Anthony Bennett had hoped.

After an atrocious rookie season with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Bennett spent his next three NBA seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves, his hometown Toronto Raptors, and lastly the Brooklyn Nets. After being waived by the Nets, one of the NBA’s worst teams, it was time for Bennett to make a decision of where to take his basketball career next.

Bennett would take his talents across the Atlantic where he would join a Turkish league team. Reports coming from the other day suggested that things are not going so smoothly for the Canadian in Turkey either:

“The club decided to assign Pero Antic back to the BSL roster, which has limited spots for non Turkish players. That made Bennett the odd man out after seven BSL games, during which he averaged 9 ppg and 6.4 rpg, playing 23 minutes per game.

“So far Bennett has also played in nine EuroLeague games, averaging 1.3 ppg and having very small contribution to the Turkish team, which will be the host of the EuroLeague Final Four.”

Well then.

The forward averaged 4.4-points, and 3.1-rebounds per game across 151-total NBA games. While there still remains a chance that Bennett can attempt to return to the NBA in time for training camp or Summer League, the chances of the first overall pick finding any sort of success are slim.
