This will be the former No. 1 overall pick's fourth team in three seasons in the NBA, as he continues to fail to live up to the expectations placed on him. He's averaged just 4.2 points and 3.1 rebounds over 12.8 minutes per game in those three seasons while never really finding a role on a team. The Nets, however, have a frontcourt filled with young, unproven talent, which could give Bennett at least an opportunity to see the floor, especially with the league putting out smaller lineups. The contract is for the minimum salary with only the first year guaranteed.
The Raptors dumped Bennett to make room for Jason Thompson, who was waived by the Warriors last week. The embattled Bennett, who's struggled to find a home since being selected No. 1 overall in 2013, may be bound for the D-League following a rough showing with the Raptors this season. He appeared in only 19 games for his hometown team, averaging 1.5 points on 29.6 percent shooting from the field over 4.4 minutes.
Anthony Bennett has appeared in two games for Toronto throughout February and has averaged 2.0 points and 1.5 rebounds in 4.5 minutes per contest.
On the season, Bennett has been declared inactive for 11 total games, and had been benched for another 26. To say the least, Bennett is buried on the depth chart and nothing suggests he will see meaningful action any time soon.
Anthony Bennett was recalled from Toronto Raptors 905 of the NBA's D-League on Saturday.
Bennett has appeared in just 13 of the Raptors' 47 contests this season, logging a minimal 4.9 minutes per outing during those showings. Meanwhile, in six D-League contests, he's averaging 9.2 points (on 34 percent shooting), 3.1 rebounds, 1.0 steal, 1.0 three-pointer, 0.7 assists, and 0.7 blocks in 18 minutes.
Anthony Bennett was recalled by the Toronto Raptors on Friday.
Despite the promotion, Bennett has made just 10 appearances on the season for the Raptors and will likely head back down to the D-League at a later point in the season. Barring something unforeseen, Bennett will remain buried on Toronto's depth chart behind Luis Scola, Patrick Patterson, and James Johnson.
