#2 Anthony Bennett, Cavaliers
Cohen’s Analysis: Many are still puzzled about Cleveland’s decision to select Anthony Bennett over any of the other candidates, including Nerlens Noel, with the first overall pick. But Bennett’s upside is striking and his all-inclusive offensive repertoire is exceptional.
While he is capable of playing the power and small forward positions, most think he isn’t laterally quick enough to guard the prototypical threes or long enough to handle the big, mighty fours.
His body, however, is ready to deal with the NBA abuse and assuming he can blend in well with Tristan Thompson; Bennett may ultimately average 20 and 10 by the time he reaches his prime.
