Anthony Bennett could have an agreement with an NBA team because he was able to get insurance to play with Canada.
Bennett has worked out for the Knicks and the Nets and Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders reported that he looked great at both. Still just 23 years old, it wouldn't be a surprise if the former No. 1 pick got another chance. At the worst, Bennett should at least get an invite to the summer league. Jun 19 - 10:03 AM

Anthony Bennett participated in the final day of Team Canada's training camp on Wednesday.

Bennett has reportedly slimmed down and will join the team as they attempt to qualify for the 2016 Olympics. The 23-year-old has recently worked out for several NBA teams and could help his case with a strong showing on the international stage. While the former No. 1 pick could earn a training camp invite somewhere, he won't have much fantasy value 2016-17.

Anthony Bennett will work out for the Knicks on Wednesday.

Royce White, Arnett Moultrie, Pierre Jackson and Ognjen Kuzmic will also be amongst those in attendance for Wednesday's workout in New York. The Knicks do not currently own a draft pick in the 2016 NBA draft, so they may need some lower-tier free agents to fill out their roster. However, none of these guys are likely to make an impact in fantasy hoops this upcoming season.

Anthony Bennett reportedly "did very well" at the Nets' recent free agent mini-camp.

The former No. 1 pick has been a major bust during his three-year NBA career, but he's still just 23 years old and the Nets aren't exactly loaded with talent. Bennett should get a chance to impress at the summer league where he's had some previous success, so maybe he can earn a roster spot in Brooklyn.
Jun 4 - 10:12 AM

Anthony Bennett is expected to work out at the Nets' minicamp this week.

This would be arguably the best spot for him, so he's going there to impress. The Nets have some major depth issues at power forward behind Thaddeus Young and they don't have a first-round pick either. Obviously he'll have to show strong conditioning at the workout and likely would have to have a monster summer league. For what it's worth, the UNLV product has been great at Vegas in the past.
May 23 - 10:25 PM

The Raptors will waive Anthony Bennett.

That's not good for the former No. 1 pick from Canada. Bennett has only played in 19 games this year and made only 29.6 percent from the field. Maybe some team picks him up, but it seems unlikely. The report does add the Suns are interested, which would easily be the best landing spot for him. He can stay on the wire for now.

The Raptors plan to use the D-League to get Anthony Bennett (back) more playing time.

Some thought Bennett's homecoming would lead to a resurgence of some kind, but it just hasn't happened.
Jan 5 - 4:50 PM

The Raptors recalled Anthony Bennett from the D-League on Friday.

He is averaging 5.8 minutes per game in 10 appearances this season, so he isn't on the fantasy radar.

Raptors recall F Anthony Bennett from the D-League.

Bennett actually asked to be sent down to the D-League so he could get some playing time.

The Raptors have assigned Anthony Bennett to the D-League.

Bennett will be recalled in time for Sunday's game vs. the Kings, so it will be a very quick D-League assignment. Bennett is not on the fantasy radar.

Anthony Bennett was a healthy DNP-CD on Wednesday.

He may be headed to the D-League in the near future, as early talk of him cracking the rotation has proven false.
Wed, Nov 4, 2015 11:32:00 PM

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.
