Not many had Anthony Bennett as the top pick in the draft entering the 2012-13 college season.
But here he is today, entering his NBA rookie season after going No. 1 overall in June. The Cavaliers fell in love with his upside, which is driven by his combination of explosiveness and offensive versatility.
Though undersized for a power forward, his true position in the pros may not matter. He has the open-floor speed to run the floor and the outside touch to stretch it, along with a developing in-between game consisting of a diverse face-up scoring arsenal.
Bennett is also active on the glass, and with extended minutes to build rhythm, he should put up a number of double-doubles this season.
Defense is likely to be his biggest rookie hurdle, as he lacks the lateral quickness to contain 3s and the size to match up with 4s.
Bennett will also join a crowded frontcourt for a team looking to make a run at the playoffs, so consistency could hold him back in the Rookie of the Year race.
But there's a good chance he'll drop your jaw at some point this year. Bennett could be a highlight machine and legitimate offensive weapon in his first season with the Cavs.
