NBA Draft: Anthony Bennett to have surgery

Anthony+Bennett+UNLV+NBA+DraftAnthony Bennett, the best power forward prospect in this year’s NBA Draft, will miss the entire draft process to have shoulder surgery.

The UNLV freshman decided to forego his college career and enter the NBA Draft after they were eliminated from the NCAA Tournament.

Bennett is still set to be a top-five selection, since he’s one of the most-skilled power forward prospects to enter the draft in some time. He has a vast array of post moves, which is something a big man usually doesn’t already possess before they enter the NBA.

Bennett is not the only prospect that will miss the draft process. Centers Alex Len (Maryland) and Nerlens Noel (Kentucky) will also miss draft camp and summer league. In Noel’s case, he will most likely miss most of his rookie season due to his ACL injury last season.
