Pierre Marie Corbacho reblogged this on Flannel, PBR and PER and commented:

This is a post I wrote yesterday about Bennett's decision to choose to sign in Europe with Fenerbahce over a D-League squad. A couple of thoughts I wanted to elaborate on: 1.) It's an interesting choice because post help off the bench is what Fenerbahce needs. Bennett on paper helps, and he has played more in the post in the past couple of years after being primarily a 3 (and being drafted to be a 3). 2.) The big issue is whether Bennett's problems stem from effort or confidence. Some people point to effort, due to conditioning and weight issues. Some people point to confidence, saying he is great in practice but doesn't always transition it to games. Zeljko Obradovic is not a patient coach, so Bennett will be tested, and if he doesn't pan out, we'll find out which was the issue in the end.
