The Phoenix Suns have signed former No. 1 overall draft pick Anthony Bennett, according to a report from The Vertical.
Per the report, the contract is non-guaranteed.
Bennett is a 6-foot-9 power forward and was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the first pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. He was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves (along with Andrew Wiggins) as part of the Kevin Love deal the following summer.
Bennett has also played for the Toronto Raptors and Brooklyn Nets, and has struggled to find a role in pro basketball. He will forever hold the distinction of being the first No. 1 overall pick to play in the NBA G League.
According to the Toronto Sun, Bennett has been bothered by a “bad ankle injury” this summer. He spent last season with Turkish club Fenerbahce.
Bennett, 24, carries career NBA averages of 4.4 points and 3.1 rebounds.
