Anthony Bennett Focused On Basketball, Not Eventual Destination
Anthony Bennett is expected to be traded by the Cleveland Cavaliers, but his destination is not yet certain.
The Cavaliers will acquire Kevin Love from the Minnesota Timberwolves, but there have been reports Bennett would be sent to the Philadelphia 76ers in the deal.
“I’m just a young man just ready to work,” Bennett said on Monday.
“Wherever I end up, doesn’t really matter to me. I just want to play the game of basketball.”
Bennett had a disappointing rookie season after coming back from shoulder surgery and doesn't find the uncertainty on his future distracting.
“Not distracting at all, just still focused on what I have to do, just working hard, keep my body healthy, just watching what I eat,” Bennett said.
“Last summer I couldn’t really do anything, just was pretty much out from the jump. This summer I was back on track right after the season, just watching everything I do, watching what I eat, just making sure everything is right for Summer League. I’m continuing more so I can be ready for the season.”
