    Former No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett has signed a non-guaranteed deal with the Phoenix Suns, league sources tell The Vertical.

    Depth and to give young guy a look. I don't think expectations are high this year and Sarver may have finally embraced that.

    NAZSuns. That's an interesting move. I love the options the G League gives teams to experiment without disrupting the regular NBA roster.

    Bennett has played for Cleveland, Brooklyn, Minnesota, and Toronto so far and hasn't shown much. I remember when he was drafted some scouts thought he'd be the next Larry Johnson, undersized PF but strong enough to keep position and not be hindered much by being an inch or two short for his position.

    He's been the worst #1 overall pick of all time though, including Greg Oden. At least when Oden was healthy he looked really promising but he was only healthy for 100 games over 6 years. Bennett has been healthy but he's just been really bad. It's been 4 years since he was drafted, I doubt things will click for him but if they do it's good for us, a non-guaranteed deal is virtually risk free for the Suns. He may end up being better than Len, who was picked 4 spots after him. That would be something.

    A lot of people here wanted the Suns to get someone that the Cav's selected #1 overall this offseason, we did it and it didn't cost us Jackson, Bledsoe, Chriss, Bender, or any future picks. :lol:

    I was hoping the Suns might get an opportunity to draft Bennett at #5 in the 2013 NBA draft where he went #1.

    I was also happy the Suns drafted Len at #5. :lmao:

    That was a bad draft especially with the early picks.

    It's easy to forget Bennett is still only 24.

    At first glance that always looks like Nazi Suns.

    No wonder we never heard anything about Anthony Bennett. He didn't even get a look in a preseason game.
