What a story it has been but in a reverse pattern! In 2013, he was number 1 pick for Cleveland Cavaliers, and now he is playing in Turkey. Well by no means we mean to say it is a bad place to play but you can imagine the difference playing in NBA to Turkish Basketball Super League. Who are we talking about? He is none other than Anthony Bennet!

Signed in Turkish league in 2017!

The 1st pick of the NBA draft in 2013, Anthony Bennet has penned a contract with the Turkish Champions for the season of 2017. Anthony comes from the Brooklyn Nets, after playing overall 151 games in NBA averaging 4.4 points and 3.1 rebounds per game. Benett, who was the No.1 pick of NBA is now being termed as worst No.1 pick regarding his statistical performance. After being picked by the Cavaliers back in 2013, Bennett has posted career averages of just 4.4 points and 3.1 rebounds in total 12.6 minutes per game for four different teams.

Worst no.1 signing?

Anthony Bennett, the 6’8 power forward has bounced around the globe in the league since he was the No.1 pick in the draft for Cleveland in 2013. He accepted a two-year minimum deal with Brooklyn and included a partially guaranteed second season in 2016.

However, he gave an excellent performance with national Team of Canada in the Pan Am games 2016. Talking after the game, he stated,

“Every year has been a learning experience. It’s a business. You just got to be on your ‘A’ game every day, pretty much, or else someone’s going to take your spot.”

Kenny Atkinson, the coach of the Canadian team also talked about Bennett, where he said,

“He proved he could shoot the three, We look at him as a guy that’s gonna fight for a rotation spot. So we really have to define what do we want from Anthony Bennett. He’s got to rebound the ball better, he’s got to run the court because I think he’s an elite athlete, and his versatility on defense has got to be huge.”

Bennett had averaged only 4.2 points and 3.1 rebounds per game in overall 128 appearances with three different teams in two NBA seasons and was released by both Minnesota and Toronto. The UNLV College product was traded by the Cavaliers, along with Andrew Wiggins, for Kevin Love back in 2014 followed by an upsetting rookie season.

However, Anthony Bennet has landed a 1.5-year contract with Fenerbahce in 2017. Earlier in 2016, he signed a two-year contract with Nets with a base salary of $1,015,696. With his career as a basketball player, he has an accumulated net worth is $8 million.
