Anthony Bennett is excited for his new opportunity with the Toronto Raptors.
“It’s good to be back, family, friends, a great fan base,” said Bennett, who did not play in the Raptors’ season-opening win against the Pacers. “I’m definitely happy about it. This is a business. You can’t just base your career off one game.”
Bennett is in better shape than he was as a rookie coming off surgery.
“Coming into the league, I was 260, 265 after surgery, and playing at the [power forward], I just felt way too heavy,” he said. “So every year I just shed a lot of pounds, and this summer with Team Canada, it definitely helped me out a lot. I got in shape, cardio going, shots are falling, and I’m ready for the season.”
