Who were the Cleveland Cavaliers going to take with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft? It was a question no one knew the answer to...until just now when they selected Anthony Bennett of UNLV. If your initial response was "who?", you're probably not alone, however, Bennett was projected to go in the top three, so it isn't an incredible surprise. Still, very few probably had the Canada native going ahead of headline grabbers, like Nerlens Noel or Victor Oladipo.
According to Ken Berger of CBS Sports, Bennett was "a favorite" of old new head Mike Brown. In his only season at UNLV, Bennett averaged 16.1 points and 8.1 rebounds per game, shooting 53.3 percent from the field. With 12 double-doubles on the year, Bennett could serve as a decent scorer who can also attack the glass. At 6'8" and 240 pounds, one would presume that he will play at the small forward starting spot, alongside Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters, Tristan Thompson and Anderson Varejao.
If that does turn out to be the team's starting five, they look promising but very, very young. In fact, their average age is 22.8 years old.
