It has been a minute since we last saw Anthony Bennett in a Cleveland Cavaliers jersey. To be exact, it has been 3,392 days since the former No. 1 overall pick played for the Cavs.
Bennett has bounced around abroad for quite a bit since his NBA career ended in 2017, and right now, he’s once again found a new home. This comes in the form of the Goyang Sono Skygunners of the Korean Basketball League, where the 30-year-old will reportedly spend the 2023-24 season after signing a contract with the team. This was reported by Korean sports website MK Sports.
The Skygunners are returning to the KBL this coming season after a considerable hiatus, and they obviously want to mark their return with a huge signing. Bennett is obviously a big name, but he’s not exactly a LeBron James. Cavs fans will attest to this fact.
Then again, Bennett did average 22.6 points, 2.2 rebounds, 2.9 assists, and 3.3 steals in 17 appearances for Hsinchu Lions in Taiwan last season, so clearly, this dude still has a lot of gas left in the tank.

For what it’s worth, Anthony Bennett is now the first overall pick to ever grace the KBL. I’m not sure how Cavs fans feel about this factoid — if they feel anything at all, that is.
