FIBA Americas Rumors

Fellow Blazers assistant David Vanterpool was on Triano’s staff and got to work with Bennett throughout the offseason at the PanAm Games and FIBA Americas Championship. The Philadelphia 76ers are also likely to pursue Bennett. “I think Anthony Bennett’s summer has been absolutely fantastic for us,” Triano told reporters in early September. “He’s engaged in everything that we do on the floor, off the floor, rebounding. We’ve asked him to rebound, and he’s done it on a continuous basis. He runs the floor on a continuous basis. He provides help on the defensive end. He understands our defensive system.”
