Evaluation: Bennett is a physically imposing forward who has a great combination of size, strength, athleticism and explosiveness. He is a monster in transition, is an excellent rebounder and is versatile. He is able to step outside and play on both ends of the court and he’s a very good finisher where he excels above the rim. Bennett also has the ability to hit perimeter and mid-range jumpers although he can certainly improve his consistency and range. He can also improve his interior scoring moves to become an all-around better threat on offense.
