There is mutual interest between the Nets and former overall top draft pick Anthony Bennett, tweets Michael Scotto of Sheridan Hoops. Bennett, who was part of the Canadian team in the Olympic qualifying tournament, has bounced around the league since the Cavaliers selected him No. 1 in the 2013 draft.
The 23-year-old power forward played briefly for Toronto this season, averaging 1.5 points and 1.2 rebounds in 19 games. He also spent a year in Minnesota after being traded there as part of the deal that brought Kevin Love to Cleveland.
Bennett was invited to Brooklyn’s mini-camp for free agents in late May and seemingly made a positive impression.
