“People often don’t look at the bigger picture and can be quick to write you off when things don’t start well immediately. “But being the No. 1 pick is a great opportunity and a huge accomplishment and if it is Simmons it’ll be a very proud moment for him and his family like it was for me.” Simmons would be the second Australian to be overall No. 1, following trailblazing centre Andrew Bogut who went first to Milwaukee in 2005, but Bennett denied there’s any extra expectation to perform on players born outside of the USA. “It was not a problem I encountered being from Canada and he (Simmons) won’t either,” he said.
With the Raptors home and the 905 playing the Delaware 87ers earlier in the day, Anthony Bennett approached management and asked to be sent down in order to take advantage of the double-header and get some reps in. The former number-one draft pick, who had only seen 48 minutes total for the Raptors this season, scored 13 and played 24 minutes in the 105-94 D-League win. “He wanted to play, he came to us,” said Casey. “Saves us from having to go and ask them. It’s great that the guys have the foresight to go and do that. Bennett being from here is a big plus to. Going down, giving the local fans a chance to see him.”
