The Brooklyn Nets and former No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett reached an agreement on a two-year deal on Thursday worth the veteran’s minimum.

Bennett, 23, was taken first overall in the 2013 NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers. The former UNLV-product has yet to live up to his potential, holding career averages of 4.2 points and 3.1 rebounds in parts of three seasons with Cleveland, the Minnesota Timberwolves, and the Toronto Raptors.

The Nets, coming off a dismal 21-61 record last season, do not have a first-round pick until 2019. With head coach Kenny Atkinson known for developing players, the team hopes that his resume translates over to Bennett and other recent acquisitions, including Greivis Vasquez, Allan Crabbe, and Joe Harris.
