Bennet's statistics, strengths and weaknesses

  • Height: 6'8
  • Weight: 240 lbs
  • 16.1 PPG
  • 1.0 APG
  • 8.1 RPG
  • 1.2 BPG

Strengths: Bennett can be virtually unguardable when he's on his game. He made a seamless transition into the college game and should do similar with the pro ranks. At 6'8, 240 pounds, he's an imposing player with serious focus, athleticism and intensity.

He can score from pretty much every power spot on the floor. Bennet specializes in floaters, tip-ins, reverse layups and dunks. And dunk he does! He was among the country's leaders last season with a total of 42 dunks! Even better: he made 23 three-pointers, averaging at least one per game. He's efficient, versatile and a fast learner.

Weaknesses: While Bennet is a sizable guy, he's kind of a tweener

—small for a full-time power forward and too slow on the defensive end to play small forward. He's also prone to injuries, as his junior and senior high school seasons were cut short from various injuries.
