Cleveland Cavalier’s undrafted rookie Kenny Kadji making presence known

Bennett grabs spotlight with fourth quarter performance

In the preseason opener against the Milwaukee Bucks, number one pick Anthony Bennett was all but spectacular, especially on the offensive end, going 2-12 from the field, including 3-8 from the line and 0-3 behind the arc. He did grab 10 boards and showed definite explosiveness, but his shot just looked like it lacked touch. Bennett looked the exact opposite last night against the...

Bennett breaks out in Cavaliers’ come from behind preseason win

Anthony Bennett gave us a taste of that top pick rationale last night. The Cavaliers looked lifeless defensively in the first half as Orlando shot 59% and dropped 8 three-pointers and 62 points on the Cavaliers. But, Dion Waiters caught fire in the third quarter, and the wine and gold’s pair of first round picks each had scoring binges of their own late in the contest. Bennett...

Video: Number-one overall pick Anthony Bennett got hot in fourth quarter of preseason game

Tweet The Cleveland Cavaliers certainly caught the majority of the basketball-watching nation off-guard in the 2013 NBA Draft when they selected Anthony Bennett out of UNLV with the first-overall pick. Bennett has had his issues this summer recovering from shoulder surgery and with getting back in in shape. However, as the Cavs took on the...

Cavs plan to bring Anthony Bennett along slowly

The good part about it is we have guys and we don’t have to rely on him as most teams would a No. 1 pick, so we can bring him along slowly. We’ll let him move and grow as quickly as he does, and not put any pressure on him to get there sooner rather than later. It’s a luxury of being around the group of guys we have here. They’ll be able to carry him until he can get to a...

Cavs' Bennett knows what warrants his attention

Anthony Bennett takes a pass at the top of the key then without taking a dribble quickly spins to his left and faces away from the basket. He spins back just as quickly squares his shoulders and shoots. Bennett's Cavaliers teammates have exited the gym. It's just Bennett several coaches and the ball.

Cavs hot start is better than the alternative

Anthony Bennett is a large human. I’d like to thank the Cavs and the NBA for making the decision to televise all eight of the Cavaliers’ preseason games. The anticipation for the Cavs’ first non-tanking, post-LeBron season has been absolutely killing me and televising these meaningless exhibition games has really allowed me to quench my basketball thirst. I’m not sure why it...

No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett easing into his role with Cavaliers

The fact that Anthony Bennett's very first shot of his very first NBA game was a 3-point attempt that clanged off the side of the backboard had nothing to do with being the last player off the practice court Thursday. At least that's what the Cavaliers' 20-year-old No. 1 draft choice is saying following his debut in Tuesday's preseason victory over Milwaukee. "...

Bennett, Oladipo put talents on display in preseason clash

ORLANDO, Fla. -- As far as matchups of the top two draft picks go, this wasn't like when the Orlando Magic had the good fortune two decades ago to land Shaquille O'Neal and watched him go head-to-head against Alonzo Mourning. Victor Oladipo and Anthony Bennett were never matched up against each other Friday night. But through three quarters, it was evident who held the upper...

With Andrew Bynum's return date uncertain and Tyler Zeller recovering from an appendectomy, the Cleveland Cavaliers have an important position to fill at backup center. Henry Sims, Kenny Kadji and DeSagna Diop are vying for the job. "I feel like I'll do whatever's in my power to make it on this team," Sims said Sunday. "Coach (Mike Brown) wants defense...
