And Derrick Rose didn't turn up to the Knicks game. Bennett, Rose, and Exum all currently on their way over to the NBL.

Exum can replace Newley and Bennett head to Brisbane. Pieces falling into place...

Who is the bigger bust?

Bennett or Oden?

Oden's were result of injuries (not necessarily his fault) but its made worse that #2 pick was KD35.

Bennett's issue is he cannot play. Cleveland would have been better off drafting James Ennis (50th).

Anthony Bennett has been called 'the worst 1st round pick in 20 years' at least Greg Oden had a legitimate excuse with injuries.

I think Oden has been too hard on himself calling himself " the biggest bust in NBA history'. Sam Bowie never had the career that projected because of injuries, but he has never been ridiculed that much for it.

I think it cuts Oden more when people (constantly) reference who #2 pick was. He is very hard on himself, he has made some silly mistakes in the past and he owns up which is refreshing.

Bennett for sure. Oden barley got a chance to show his worth.

It's not even Bennett's fault. Cavs should never have picked him #1.

I never understood how Bennet was even in the #1 pick conversation let alone being picked that high. Watching him play for UNLV he never showed flashes, let alone consistent play, that showed he could make it in the NBA! It was a relatively shallow draft but a least guys like Oladipo, Noel, McLemore etc showed a little bit in college that suggested they could play in the league.

He wasn't in the #1 conversation, that was the whole problem. He was considered a late lottery pick because of his athleticism/size, but that was it. The Cavs were being far too clever at this point in their draft history with guys like Bennett and Waiters, although to be fair they were pretty awful drafts overall.

Ogden was very good when he did play, that doesn't get mentioned much

Bennett is easily the bigger bust. But as said, he didn't pick himself. That's on the Cavs as much as anyone.
