Why isn't anyone talking about Bennett he is averaging 20 and 8 through his first 4 games. He isn't even in the mock draft at all. Looks like top 10 pick to me so far.
I like him a lot too. Normally I am against hating on a prospect because he is so called "undersized" but if he is 6'7 it could hurt him.
He reminds me of one of my all time favorite players Larry Johnson, If he can develop along same line he can make it. Key will be learning to create his own shot against bigger players and punishing smaller players inside.
They did have him in the mock over the summer if I remember correctly, but now they only have Birch in 2014 and that is based on high school hype still because he hasn't added weight or even played.
His injury problems are still his main redflag, he is ultra talented and can develop into a Paul Millsap/ Larry Johnson type of player
I dont remember him being injury prone?
I like his skill level, if a 4 can shoot, post, and attack from the high post they can be successful at any level; he is a big 6'7".
I had him in the late teens and am thinking about moving him up. His shot is really nice and he can attack off the bounce from the mid-range, so he has all the makings of a face up game. His injury history and size has already been discussed, but another thing that I don't like is that he's not always willing to mix it up on the interior. For as big and strong he looks, he's not the most physical guy in the paint and doesn't always seem willing to do the dirty work, which reminds me of Derrick Williams in a bad way.
Bennet kinda reminds me of barkley, both heavy undersized 4's who possess explosiveness going to the bucket. A lot of people forget that barkley was a shade under 6'5.
lets put it this way, he should def be somewhere in a mock draft ahead of the other guys they have up there
AB is 18th in the 2014 Ranking. One of four Canadians with Wiggins, Birch and Powell.
Bennett is having lower back problems again. Same problem he had in HS along with other stuff like hamstring problems.
