08:17 AM ET 03.25 | Over the course of his freshman season at UNLV, Anthony Bennett, 6-foot-8, 240 pounder who hails from Canada, averaged more than 16 points and eight rebounds per game for the Runnin' Rebs -- and he may be one-and-done. [Bennett] is expected to leave college after one season. Sources told CBSSports.com that the 6-foot-8 Canadian forward, who averaged 16.1 points and 8.1 rebounds per game this season, will make an official announcement sometime in the next week. Bennett is considered a high-lottery pick in June's NBA Draft and is ranked third overall in CBSSports.com's latest mock draft.

So what position does he play in the NBA? He has good size for a SF but definitely plays a more PF style. Can shoot the jumper a little but not good enough to respect plus has no handle to mention. I don't think the kid is ready honestly. If he had a Faried type motor when it came to rebounding I would feel different.
