Bold Statement: Anthony Bennett will be Cleveland's starting small forward by the 2014-15 season
The Cavs are going to start with Bennett at power forward as a backup to Tristan Thompson. But I'm not sure that's his NBA position.
At only around 6'7'', Bennett will be at a size disadvantage inside on a routine basis. With a slim waist and nifty agility, along with a potent blend of speed and explosiveness, Bennett will be more effective in open-floor situations.
He also has a promising jumper that could help set up the dribble drive. It will take some time for Bennett to adapt and hone his skill set, but he can definitely be more dangerous in a role where he's constantly facing the rim.
The Cavs also have a need at small forward. With Andrew Bynum, Anderson Varejao and Tristan Thompson locked in as the 4s and 5s, they could maximize the talent on the roster by playing Bennett alongside them.
Larry Johnson, Bennett's NBA comparison, made this exact same transition. If the Cavs could find a way to play Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters, Bennett, Thompson and Bynum all together, they'll have the firepower needed to threaten teams across the league.
