Anthony Bennett and Chris McCullough are both players that the Nets are taking a chance on. Neither player will be the starting power forward at the beginning of the season. That spot belongs to Luis Scola for now and rightfully so. Each of these players will have to earn that starting spot if they want it.
Bennett, mostly known for being a draft bust, is only 23 years old and is entering his fourth season in the NBA. He is a guy looking for a fresh start and an opportunity to prove himself. With the Nets, he will be given his fair share of minutes at the power forward position and will take advantage of every second he is on the floor. However, this truly is Bennett’s last life line for an NBA career. The Nets are not loaded at the power forward position. This means that it should not be hard for Bennett to slowly work his way into a role player position. If he fails to produce at least decent numbers and become a role player for Brooklyn, he might have to start looking overseas for work.
