The Raptors intended to send Anthony Bennett to the D-League for much of the 2015-16 season, but his strong preseason may earn him a spot in the rotation.

Unfortunately for Bennett, he's still buried on the depth chart behind Patrick Patterson and Luis Scola. He's averaged 27.5 DNPs over the past two seasons, due to injuries and lack of effectiveness, and he's a non-factor outside of very deep leagues.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey has been impressed with Anthony Bennett's defense.

"One thing that has impressed me is his defence," Casey said. "His defence is ahead of his offence. That was a surprise." Despite making positive impressions in Toronto thus far, Bennett remains off the fantasy radar.

Anthony Bennett started at PF for the Raptors on Wednesday and had 10 points, three 3-pointers, eight rebounds, one assist and three steals in a tough loss to the Wolves.

Patrick Patterson came off the bench and Luis Scola (rest) didn't play, allowing coach Dwane Casey to give Bennett some extended run alongside Jonas Valanciunas. He's now averaging 5.5 points on combined 6-of-19 shooting through four preseason games. Tonight was a baby step in the right direction, but there's no reason to approach Bennett on draft day.

Anthony Bennett (shoulder) returned to action in Monday's preseason game against the Warriors, scoring five points on 1-of-6 shooting with two assists in 16 minutes.

Bennett can be ignored in most fantasy leagues until he gives us a reason to pay attention.
Oct 6 - 1:16 AM

Anthony Bennett (shoulder) will not play in Sunday's preseason game vs. the Clippers.

Bennett hyper-extended his shoulder during Sunday's practice, and the Raptors will hold him out as a precaution. Bennett will struggle to get minutes in Toronto, with Patrick Patterson and Luis Scola both ahead of him in the rotation, so there's no reason to target him in most leagues.
Oct 4 - 7:18 PM

Anthony Bennett hyper-extended his shoulder during practice on Sunday and he's unlikely to play vs. the Clippers.

It's a minor injury but Bennett can't afford many setbacks as he fights for playing time during training camp. Patrick Patterson and Luis Scola are ahead of Bennett on the depth chart and that's unlikely to change while both veterans are healthy.
Oct 4 - 5:32 PM

Anthony Bennett said he's excited to suit up for the Toronto Raptors this season.

Just two years removed from being the first overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, Bennett may be on his last chance to prove himself as an NBA player. "It has been something I've been thinking about growing up, watching Vince Carter play," Bennett said. "And now I'm back here. It's surreal, but at the same time it's work. I'm just ready to go all out." While Bennett looked good in international play over the summer, he'll join a crowded front court in Toronto and can be left undrafted in standard leagues.

Raptors sign F Anthony Bennett.

After it was widely reported that Bennett would head back home and join the Raptors, Toronto makes the move official. While it's a good landing spot from a psychological standpoint for Bennett, he has a ton to prove in a crowded frontcourt. He's not a fantasy target at this time.
Sep 28 - 9:23 AM

Anthony Bennett signed a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum with the Raptors on Sunday.

Bennett has been a disaster during his brief NBA career so far, but he will get a fresh start in Toronto and did have some nice moments for Team Canada this summer. Bennett will have to try and steal some minutes away from Patrick Patterson and Luis Scola, but he isn't on the fantasy radar in standard leagues.
Sep 27 - 1:51 PM

Anthony Bennett will sign with the Toronto Raptors, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

Bennett isn't exactly going to the best place for an opportunity. That said, the Raptors aren't strong at power forward with Patrick Patterson and Luis Scola, so Bennett could get some run with a strong preseason. He's only worth a flier in 20-team leagues or deeper.
Sep 25 - 5:12 PM

Anthony Bennett has cleared waivers.

He's now a free agent and any team can sign him. The Raptors are likely going to be heard because of the Canadian ties, but Bennett may want to go to a weaker team in order to get some playing time. He's only worth a look in deep leagues.
Sep 25 - 5:07 PM

Anthony Bennett will not be claimed and will be a free agent, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

He could wind up with any team he wants and chances are some team will sign him. The Raptors are in the mix and any team with frontcourt depth issues may give him a look.
Sep 25 - 4:37 PM

Wolves waive F Anthony Bennett.

It's official. Bennett reportedly wanted to be bought out so he could pursue other opportunities. The 76ers and Blazers are considering pursuing Bennett, which would actually give him a chance for minutes. If you want to use your last pick on him, it's not a horrible idea.
Sep 23 - 5:17 PM

The Timberwolves are reportedly finalizing their buyout with former No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett.

Bennett agreed to have his salary of $5.8 million cut to $3.6 million as part of the deal, and so far reports suggest that he could be headed for Portland. He's had a tough time staying healthy through his brief two-year career, and he's never managed to do much on the stat sheet, so there's no reason to give Bennett a second thought on draft day regardless of what jersey he winds up wearing.
