NBA Draft 2013: Brew Hoop Community Draft Board - Pick #7

New, comments

Another big goes up on the board in pick #6. Could we see a run on high-potential players in the mid-lottery?

Jeff Bottari

The sixth selection on the Brew Hoop Draft Board is Anthony Bennett, PF, UNLV. Bennett was hugely productive in his freshman season with the Runnin' Rebels, averaging over 23 points and 11 rebounds per 40 minutes on sparkling 60% true shooting. His ability to score both inside (73% shooting at the rim) and outside (38.3 3P%), along with passable free-throw shooting (just under 70%) make Bennett one of the best overall scorers in the draft. He produced at a high level despite being fairly undersized for his position; measuring just 6'7" in shoes at the combine, Bennett will give up quite a bit of height to some of the top NBA 4s. But he's very strong, one of the few prospects not tagged with the "needs to add strength" label. He's also incredibly athletic and has a big 7'1" wingspan, so he should be able to play bigger than he really is. There's some concern about his defense, both 1-on-1 and as part of a team concept, but his offensive potential alone makes him worth a high pick.
