No formal announcement has been made yet, but according to CBSSports.com, UNLV’s Anthony Bennett will forgo his sophomore season and declare for the 2013 NBA Draft. After averaging 16 points and 8 rebounds per game, the 6-8 Canadian forward is projected to be a top-10 pick, and could make an immediate impact at the next level.

    Canada basketball on the rise! Two top-ten in back-to-back drafts, including the consensus number one in 2014 Andrew Wiggins.

    no surprise here. his stock fell somewhat though, he looked like a top 3-5 lock in the beginning of the season. i like better than any other big man in this draft though

    Canada Basketball has a real bright future.

    Solid to Good College Players: Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, Myck Kabongo, Kelly Olynyk, Nick Stauskas, Khem Birch and Kevin Pangos.

    Plus some good young NBA’ers: Tristan Thompson, Corey Joseph, Andrew Nicholson and Kris Joseph

    Some Veterans who are still capable, Steve Nash, Samuel Dalembert and Joel Anthony (less capable than most)

    And some fringe NBA talents: Andy Rautins and Robert Sacre
