Raptors' Anthony Bennett Assigned To D-League, Likely To Rejoin The Team The Same Day

Toronto Raptors forward Anthony Bennett has been assigned to the team's NBA Development League affiliate, Raptors 905.

Bennett will play for Raptors 905 on Sunday afternoon against the Delaware 87ers, but is expected to be recalled by Toronto for its evening matchup against the Sacramento Kings.

"Anthony came to us asking to use this double-header as an opportunity to work on his game," said Jeff Weltman, Raptors executive vice president of basketball operations.

"This is an example of how we envisioned using our D-League team to improve our players."

Bennett has appeared in nine games with the Raptors this season, totalling 14 points and 15 rebounds in 48 minutes.
