Cleveland Cavaliers Select Anthony Bennett With First Overall Pick in 2013 NBA Draft

The Cleveland Cavaliers have selected Anthony Bennett with the first overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.

One of the most explosive offensive players in college last year as a freshman at UNLV, Bennett has an ideal forward frame at 6' 8" and 240 pounds and could swing between both spots in the NBA. Bennett averaged 16 points and eight rebounds last year and has some range from beyond the arc as well. He poses a matchup nightmare because while you have to challenge any shot, he can just as easily beat you off the dribble a drive to the basket. He is a dominant scorer, but as could be expected not much was seen out of him on the defensive front in his one year in Vegas.
