Report: No. 1 pick bust Anthony Bennett's NBA comeback derailed by faulty knee

  Report: No. 1 pick bust Anthony Bennett's NBA comeback derailed by faulty knee Report: No. 1 pick bust Anthony Bennett's NBA comeback derailed by faulty kneeBennett, the No. 1 pick in the 2013 draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers, is on the Houston Rockets’ training camp roster. The Chronicle reports that the setback with his knee is expected to cost him a chance at making the roster.

From No . 1 pick in 2013 to waived by the NBA’s worst team in 2017, Anthony Bennett continues to fall. Bennett ’s minimum salary is guaranteed, so the Nets will have to pay what he’s owed for this season. This will even give him a chance to double dip – though that second salary will surely come in

Anthony Bennett will get another chance in the NBA with the Rockets , and he may finally have the skills to deliver. As of 2019, Anthony Bennett is known for being an epic NBA Draft bust – but the former No . 1 overall pick may receive a chance to change his legacy this season with the Houston

The Houston Rockets have officially waived forward Anthony Bennett, The Athletic's Shams Charania reported Wednesday.

The move was expected after a report emerged last week that Bennett would have an arthroscopic surgery on his sore left knee. The 6-foot-8 power forward had signed a non-guaranteed deal with Houston earlier this offseason.

Bennett's injury was not disclosed before training camp, but he sat out drills when practice opened with what was termed "knee tendinitis" and did not play in any preseason games.

Instead, it was Anthony’s inability to adjust to the team’s defensive scheme that doomed his time in Houston, according to ESPN’s Baxter Holmes.

Bennett was the first Canadian to be the top pick in the NBA draft. So it ends for Anthony Bennett , his four-year, four-team NBA career in ruins after the former first overall draft pick was unceremoniously dumped by the woeful Brooklyn Nets on Monday morning.

Bennett's exit should further boost the odds that sharpshooting big man Ryan Anderson, who signed with the Rockets two weeks ago on a partially guaranteed deal, ultimately makes the Houston roster.

After acquiring Russell Westbrook this offseason, Houston GM Daryl Morey said that "shooting bigs" like Bennett could have more value. "He's a shooting big," Morey said in August of Bennett, the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. "We think with Russell here, a shooting big can have more value. He was one of the best bigs in the G League."

Bennett last played in the NBA with the Brooklyn Nets during the 2016-17 season. But with the Los Angeles Clippers' G League affiliate last year, he shot 45.3% on three-pointers and averaged 12.1 points and 4.5 rebounds in 20.9 minutes per game.

The Clippers still hold Bennett's G League rights. That means the Rockets' G League affiliate - the Rio Grande Valley Vipers - would have to work out a trade in order to keep Bennett within the Houston organization, once he is medically able to return.

In theory, Bennett's departure opens up a roster spot for the Rockets as training camp and preseason play continues.

However, because Houston already has more players in camp than the regular-season roster limit of 15 players under standard contracts and two more on two-way contracts, it is unclear whether the Rockets would want to add another player this late in camp who would be very unlikely to make the final roster, regardless.

The final roster will be set by Thursday, Oct. 24, which is when the Rockets open up the 2019-20 regular season with a home game versus the Milwaukee Bucks.

Thankfully Bennett was so bad the Wolves had the sense to waive him after a year instead of getting strung along on the promise of talent like they did with I just became a Rockets fan for this season. I hope to see a whole lot of Anthony Bennett flairs. There’s no way rockets aren’t the favourites now.
