NBA Draft Prospect Anthony Bennett
6,7 – Power Forward – UNLV
Explosive and powerful athlete who can really elevate and attack the rim. Broad shouldered with very strong upper body and great power. Uses his strength well to make up for less than ideal size and is able to overpower and out-quick opponents.
Has very good hands, catches the ball well and can handle the ball well. Very quick with the dribble and can beat his man with spin moves, drop step and a nice step back J. Has excellent form on his jumper and can step out to three point land and knock down jumpers. Very versatile offensive player with a high skill level.
At 6,7 he doesn’t have great size for the power forward position. Should continue to overpower opponents in college but will have to continue to expand his game for the NBA level. Needs to get into top shape and improve his conditioning. Needs to put in more work on the defensive end.
Projection: Lottery pick in the 2013 NBA Draft
