LAS VEGAS: Top overall pick Anthony Bennett will primarily play power forward this season, coach Mike Brown said Wednesday. The experiment of whether Bennett can handle the small forward role won’t come until later.
“He’s a power forward who I think maybe one day can play small forward,” Brown said. “He won’t play small forward for awhile. They are two different positions for us. He will strictly be a power forward. He may be a power forward this whole year. I have no plans right now to use him this year at the small forward position.”
Bennett joined the Cavs’ summer league team this week, but he won’t play while he recovers from shoulder surgery.
