Report: Former No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett invited to Rockets’ training camp

Anthony Bennett

Anthony Bennett is getting another shot at the NBA.

Bennett, the No. 1 overall pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2013 NBA Draft, agreed to a non-guaranteed deal with the Rockets, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

The Houston Chronicle’s Jonathan Feigen said that Bennett is being invited to the team’s training camp.

Bennett has only played 151 career games in the NBA. His last stint came in the 2016-2017 season with the Brooklyn Nets, when he averaged 5.0 points and 3.4 rebounds in 11.5 minutes per game.

Just being invited to training camp on a non-guaranteed deal doesn’t mean a whole lot. The same happened with Bennett two years ago with the Suns, who ended up playing him just a few minutes in the preseason before waiving him. David Griffin has even admitted his mistake in drafting him.
