    Anthony Bennett Drawing Karl Malone Comparisons
    Jan 02, 2013 4:39 PM EST


    Anthony Bennett has had an outstanding freshman season at UNLV, averaging 19.2 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 28.3 minutes per game.

    Bennett has increased his stock in the eyes of NBA scouts.

    "I have heard Karl Malone a little bit, which is really intriguing," wrote Chad Ford.

    Bennett is listed at 6'8, which would make him a slightly undersized power forward.

    Been following Bennett closely for 3 years now .. seen 11 games live. He's really good .. I think he's a tweener that will transcend the position like Barkley .. not as well .. but in the same way. He has a bit of perimeter skills, but I think he needs to focus on strength rather than handles, etc...

    He should go around 14/15 on 'my' board.

    We will have to disagree on where he ranks. I see him as a top 10 potentially top 5 depending on how well he performs in league play. Like you I have seen him play for 3 years both at Findlay and as a season ticket holder. I really like his swagger and his versatility, but do agree he needs to try to be more effective in the post as he tries to do too much on the perimeter at times. I think some of that is rices offense though because at Findlay he did a little more work down low.

    Was Malone a legit 6'9? Bennet is 6'8 and change from the look of him. I think a taller Grandmama is a good comparison for him. Unfortunately he has had back trouble like LJ so hope that does not become part of his comparison.

    I don't recall anyone bashing his size, bru ..

    He's a beast down low .. not a sf, at this point .. am I wrong???????

    Anyway, like the guy, he's beasting, he needs to give breadth to his skill set .. is he doing that???

    I don't think Bennett will be in the Jazz's range. He intrigues me greatly, though.

    I remember seeing Karl and his wife at a Jamba Juice in SLC back in the glory days. He didn't strike as as a legit 6'9", but if you put him next to other players listed in that range, he fit in. A young Elton Brand might be another comparison for Bennett.

    Here are some Elton Brand highlights from Duke... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hvLO286z9I

    I agree with this. Bennett looks comparable to Derrick Williams and Thomas Robinson, and he can do some things those guys can't with his ball handling and feel for the game. Still, he might be hurt a bit because of the impression that Williams and TRob have made being a bit undersized.

    I was legitimately asking. Was not sure if Malone was 6'9.

    Those highlights were sexy. Looks very little like to DWilliams to me.

    Yeah Derrick Williams is not a good comparison IMO. I hope he does stay in the 12-9 range so we have a shot. Love to see a three man rotation of favors, bennet, and kanter for our future core.
