Earlier this week, forward and noted Canadian Anthony Bennett was bought out by the Minnesota Timberwolves and placed on waivers. Now, a report from ESPN's John Goodman says that Bennett is expected to clear waivers and sign with the Toronto Raptors.

As stated in our last Bennett piece, the Raptors only have the minimum to offer Bennett, so expect that to be the salary. Bennett, the former number one overall draft pick in 2013, would fill the 15th roster spot and is likely to play behind Patrick Patterson and Luis Scola at power forward. Bennett would also join Cory Joseph as "CanCon" for the upcoming 2015-16 season. In two seasons with the Timberwolves and Cavaliers, Bennett averaged 4.7 points and 3.4 rebounds in 14 minutes per game.
So, it appears he's on his way after all. Do you like Anthony Bennett on the Raptors?
