Anthony Bennett was unexpectedly drafted #1 overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2013 NBA draft. He was traded following his rookie season in the deal that sent Kevin Love to Cleveland. He is being bought out after just one season in Minnesota.
The Timberwolves do have a lot of depth at the Power Forward position. Kevin Garnett, Karl-Anthony Towns, Nemanja Bjelica, Adreian Payne and Gorgui Dieng are all viable options at the Power Forward.
Bennett has talent, but he has yet to find his rhythm in the NBA. Do not be surprised if he is linked to the Toronto Raptors, as he is from Canada and he just got done playing for the Canada FIBA team this offseason.
With Bennett's release, it brings the Timberwolves roster to 15 guaranteed contracts. You can only have a maximum of 15 players on an NBA roster.
