NBA: Bennett Toronto signs a year, is the best choice for the player?
A few days ago we told that the Minnesota Timberwolves would cut Anthony Bennett. They did and went 48 hours without anyone claim relevant contract, so now free to sign for any franchise player has enrolled in the Bennett Toronto Raptors.
Born in Toronto precisely just 22 years ago, Bennett will be the second Canadian in franchise history after Jamaal Magloire. It will take the ’15’, the number that in the future it may withdraw Vince Carter signed for only one season and collect the minimum that applies to a player of his seniority, an amount less than a million dollars.
For the Raptors, so they incur little economically, it is not a gamble and even in terms of marketing you can come in handy for what the player is a native of Toronto. But as Bennet? Would comes well get to this franchise or another he has done better looking?
We do not know if I had other offers on the table but the Raptors really does not seem the place where Bennett could finally show what he can do. The Raptors are a team with aspirations and that’s always tempting, but also for it is a computer that will be even more difficult to win minutes.
Whether use of forward and power forward, Bennett will have a tough competition with players like DeMarre Carroll, Luis Scola, Patrick Patterson and James Johnson seem ahead. Unless really explode, is not expected to have more opportunities in Cleveland and Minnesota where, with less competition, did not play much.
For Bennett Toronto can be a very important year despite his youth, the year that will define whether to have an NBA career or if it thickens the list of worst number 1 draft pick in a very high position. There seems to Toronto, his third team in three years, the best place, although it is in your hand take the opposite.
