Anthony Bennett, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 draft, has had two disappointing seasons in the NBA. The first with Cleveland was bad enough that the Cavaliers were willing to give him up after just one season as part of last summer’s blockbuster trade that also sent Andrew Wiggins to the Timberwolves in exchange for Kevin Love.
And now it appears the Wolves are ready to move on without him just as quickly as Cleveland was. Per a report from ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Wolves have made Bennett available in a trade prior. The big question: What could the Wolves get for Bennett at this point?
