      Raptors' Anthony Bennett: Remains in deep bench role

      Bennett failed to see any minutes in Toronto's 91-80 victory Sunday against the Clippers. Bennett hasn't appeared in the Raptors' last five matchups, and he's seen double-digit minutes only once in their first 15 games. Bennett doesn't seem to be a major part of head coach Dwane Casey's rotation, and is currently slotted behind Luis Scola, Patrick Patterson and James Johnson on the depth chart.

      Raptors' Anthony Bennett: Near double-double in preseason loss

      Bennett tallied 10 points (3-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-4 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and three steals in a preseason loss to Minnesota on Wednesday. Coach Dwayne Casey was complimenting Bennett just a few days ago and it appears Bennett has some confidence now that he didn't have in his first couple of years. Obviously the talent is still there for the former number one overall pick and the move to Toronto may be the best break he's had in his short career. His fantasy value is still limited as a bench player, but he just needs to keep improving to eventually get on the fantasy radar.

      Raptors' Anthony Bennett: Impressing on defensive end

      Bennett has impressed Raptors coach Dwane Casey with his defense since joining the club, the Toronto Sun reports. "He's in the right place, he gets there quickly, with a sense of urgency, with force. He's known as an offensive player, but his defense has been the most impressive thing to this point," Casey said Sunday. The Raptors haven't yet settled on a primary backup to DeMarre Carroll at small forward, so if Bennett can continue flashing in the defensive end he could well end up seeing more significant minutes than expected in the team's wing rotation.

      Raptors F Anthony Bennett returns to practice Saturday

      Raptors forward Anthony Bennett (ankle) returned to practice after rolling his ankle in Thursday's game. Bennett is looking to rejuvenate his career for his hometown team after a rocky start playing for the Cavaliers and the Timberwolves. The former number one pick will likely start with a bench role for the Raptors and look to earn his playing time. His preseason performance will play a factor in the teams confidence, so it's good news that he's returned to practice.

      Raptors F Anthony Bennett makes preseason debut Monday

      Raptors forward Anthony Bennett (shoulder) made his preseason (and Raptors) debut Monday against the Warriors, scoring five points (1-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and handing out two assists in 16 minutes. Bennett sat out Sunday's exhibition opener after hyperextending his shoulder in a recent practice, but his return to the court Monday suggests the injury was never a major concern. Cut loose by the Timberwolves earlier this summer, Bennett will look to recoup value while playing for his hometown team, but in a best-case scenario, he looks destined for an end-of-the-bench role.

      Raptors F Anthony Bennett likely out for preseason opener

      Raptors forward Anthony Bennett is likely to miss Sunday's preseason opener against the Clippers, Eric Koreen of the National Post reports. Bennett hyperextended his shoulder in practice and will probably take the night off to rest it. The injury doesn't seem like anything to serious, and the former first-overall pick should be good to go by the beginning of the regular season.

      Forward Anthony Bennett signs one-year deal with Raptors

      Forward Anthony Bennett has signed a one-year contract with the Raptors for the veteran's minimum, Shams Charania of Yahoo reports. As anticipated, Bennett will head to the Raptors on a one-year deal. Bennett struggled to get meaningful minutes with the Timberwolves last season, so it's tough to see him making much of a name for himself in Toronto. He finished the 2014-15 season playing in 57 games, while averaging 5.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 0.8 assists over 16 minutes per game. Steer clear of Bennett in standard leagues until he proves himself otherwise.

      Report: PF Anthony Bennett expected to sign with Raptors

      Forward Anthony Bennett, a former top draft pick who has so far been a monumental bust in the NBA, could sign with the Raptors as early as next week, Marc Stein of ESPN reports. It's important to note that nothing is set in stone at this time, but Stein notes that "barring some unexpected snag" the Raptors could bring Bennett in on a minimum deal, all the team can offer given its current cap situation. The native of Canada would not immediately step into a significant role unless he unexpectedly realizes his potential in a hurry.

      Report: Timberwolves reach buyout agreement with Anthony Bennett

      Forward Anthony Bennett's contract was bought out by the Timberwolves on Tuesday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. Reports surfaced Monday night suggesting the two sides were working toward a buyout, and that has now been finalized, meaning Bennett will become a free agent. The former No. 1 overall pick has now flamed out in both Cleveland and Minnesota, but considering his age (22) and relative upside, he figures to resurface with another franchise willing to take what is ultimately a fairly low-risk chance on him. The 76ers and Trail Blazers are two teams whose names have already surfaced as potential suitors.

      Report: Former No. 1 Anthony Bennett available in trade

      With the Timberwolves sitting on the No. 1 pick in Thursday's draft, former No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett is being made available for trade purposes, reports. The forward has been a disappointment during his first two seasons in the league, first with the Cavaliers and last year with the Wolves. Bennett averaged 5.2 points and 3.8 rebounds in 57 games in Minnesota while missing big stretches of the season with leg and ankle injuries. Bennett was dealt to the Timberwolves as part of the three-team trade that netted the Cavaliers Kevin Love.
