    Brooklyn Nets waive former No. 1 draft pick Anthony Bennett

    The Brooklyn Nets waived former No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett on Monday.

    Bennett was taken with the first pick in the 2013 NBA draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers as a 20-year-old out of UNLV. 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 brought Kevin Love to Cleveland.

    Bennett was waived by the Timberwolves in September 2015, however. He signed with Toronto and played some in the NBA Development League and 19 games with the Raptors. He was waived by Toronto in March 2016.

    Bennett appeared in 23 games this season for the Nets, averaging 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.
