Anthony Bennett lands on his feet ... in Turkey

NBA: Brooklyn Nets at Toronto Raptors Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

As David Pick, the European hoops writer tweeted, there’s never been a lack of pro teams willing to take a risk on Anthony Bennett...

Call it the Brooklyn Pipeline

This has the look of a deal that was in the works before the Nets waived Bennett for Quincy Acy four days ago. At the time, Kenny Atkinson said, “This gives him an opportunity ... to have a possibility with other teams. It also gives us a roster spot.”

The move may also help the Nets (a bit) re the salary cap. Bennett will make $400,000 from Fenerbahce. That amount is deducted from what the Nets owe Bennett for cap purposes.
