Anthony Bennett has had a slow start to his NBA career, but the Cleveland Cavaliers are not considering sending him to the D-League.

"The Cavs think Bennett can learn and develop more here at the moment," wrote Cavaliers' beat writer Mary Schmitt Boyer.

A No. 1 pick has never been sent to the D-League, though Hasheem Thabeet was sent there by the Memphis Grizzlies as the No. 2 pick.
