2013 NBA Draft top pick fails to rank in Israel



The The Cleveland Cavaliers‘decision to select Anthony bennett with choice n ° 1 in the 2013 NBA Draft eyebrows raised back then, and it’s a judgment that looks even worse over time, especially given the careers people love Giannis Antetokounmpo and Rudy Gobert of the same class continued to have.

The striker, who is still only 28, was traded to Minnesota Timber Wolves a year after being drafted as part of the agreement which saw Kevin Amour join Cavs, yet his career in the NBA never took off.

Bennett last played in the NBA during the 2016/17 season, and after being dismissed by the brooklyn nets in January 2017, he quickly joined Fenerbahçe in Turkey. Then, after playing for three teams in the League G and a brief passage on the Puerto Rican side Cangrejeros de Santurce, Bennett joined Hapoel Jerusalem in the Israeli Basketball Premier League.

However, less than a month and a half after joining Hapoel Jerusalem, journalist Roi Cohen reports that the Israeli side will cut the Canadian after their opening Champions League game against Turkish club Pinar Karsiyaka.

Bennett was considered one of the Hapoel Jerusalemthe star signings of the offseason, as well as two other alumni NBA players in Tuna maker and Sean Kilpatrick, but it looks like the former No.1’s stay in Israel will be short-lived.
