No one is questioning Anthony Bennett’s raw skill. The Canadian import certainly showed a good amount of it in his solo college season as a leading man for a round-peg-square-hole UNLV team. Forced at times to play out of position at the 5, Bennett still averaged more than 16 points and eight rebounds a game for the Rebels while displaying very developed perimeter skills for a power forward. The question for him as a prospect is how his unconventional power-forward game (and size, 6-foot-7) can fit in with the team that drafts him.
