Here's more from Highkin at Sports on Earth:
At Summer League, Bennett is a different player. He's lost a considerable amount of weight, drawing deserved "best shape of his life" buzz on media row.
A breakaway dunk in the Cavs' Summer League opener on Friday drew disbelief at first, but any cynicism had dissipated by the end of the night. His second game did not disappoint -- he finished with 14 rebounds and displayed a shooting range and knack for smart passes that was nowhere to be found last season.
In Philadelphia, Bennett should be able to keep it simple. He'll be tasked with trailing the break and either spotting up around the perimeter or diving straight to the rim.
In the half court, he'll run pick-and-pop with Michael Carter-Williams and have a green light offensively. In his rookie year and summer league, Bennett received most of his looks near the top of the arc. That shouldn't change much in Philadelphia.
Bennett can be a featured piece, and the presence of Nerlens Noel should help him find his role rather easily. Noel projects to be an elite shot-blocker and rim protector, so Bennett can focus on using his big frame to carve out rebounding room defensively while Noel contests everything in his range.
Playing the strong majority of his minutes next to a guy like Noel or rookie big man Joel Embiid (or both in big lineups down the line) can give Bennett a more focused role than the one he had in Cleveland.
Again, though, the basics need to be in place for Bennett to turn around his career after a disastrous rookie campaign. Better conditioning will go a long way, and so will a virtually pressure-free environment.
Philadelphia's coaching staff will be invested in the long-term, so taking it slowly with Bennett and riding out his errors won't be a problem at all.
It may seem crazy given how bad Philadelphia was last year, but this really could be the perfect place for Bennett to get out of the spotlight and slowly build toward becoming the dangerous stretch 4 he was always projected to be.
