Nets Waive Former No. 1 Pick Anthony Bennett
The Brooklyn Nets officially released former No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft Anthony Bennett on Monday after just four years.
The team will sign veteran power forward Quincy Acy to replace him, according to league sources. He played one season for the Cavs before being traded with 2014 No. 1 pick Andrew Wiggins to the Timberwolves in the three-team deal that sent Kevin Love to Cleveland to form the Big Three.
Bennett appeared in 23 games this season for the Nets, averaging just 5.0 points and 3.4 rebounds in 11.5 minutes per game. For his career, he has averaged 4.4 points and 3.1 rebounds per game.
