NBA Trade News: Anthony Bennett Inches Closer To Buy-Out Agreement With Minnesota Timberwolves

Anthony Bennett and Minnesota Timberwolves are working on a buy-out agreement steadily, according to sources closer to the league.

Anthony Bennett and Minnesota Timberwolves are working on a buy-out agreement steadily, according to sources closer to the league. Bennett was eager on getting more playing minutes with other teams, and was seeking a buy-out from the Timberwolves. The Wolves failed to find a trade involving Bennett this off-season.

One must remember that Bennett was the first overall pick of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2013 NBA draft. Bennett’s agents have been eagerly pushing the franchise for a contract buy-out. Finally, progress has been made.

The Timberwolves have a deep front-court, leaving Bennett with very little probability of getting higher playing minutes.

According to sources, the Philadelphia 76ers and Portland Trail Blazers possess the $5.8 million cap space for Bennett’s annual salary package. There is a high probability for Bennett to land at Philadelphia or Portland. A third team, Utah Jazz, could clear cap-space for Bennett by waiving a couple of non-guaranteed contracts.

Minnesota acquired Bennett as a part of a Kevin Love deal that brought 2014 No 1 draft pick Andrew Wiggins at the Wolves.

6-foot-8 inched forward Bennett was a shocking choice of the Cavaliers front office for No 1 overall pick in 2013 NBA Draft.
