A little more than a week after making a switch to small forward, someone asked Anthony Bennett what the most difficult part was about changing positions.

The 2013 No. 1 draft pick paused, exhaled long and loud, and chuckled softly.

"I don't know, man," Bennett said. "That's a hard question for me."

Changing from power forward to small forward is only part of the struggle for the 6-foot-9 Bennett. Still learning how to adjust to life in the NBA after 20 less-than-spectacular games is the bigger challenge.

Nothing is coming easily.

"Definitely not," Bennett confirmed.

The Cavaliers are hopeful that moving the undersized Bennett to small forward might help him earn more playing time, and give them more options at that position.

Bennett is hopeful that a change will provide him with a different outlook and a chance at better production than his current 2.1 points and 2.1 rebounds in 10.7 minutes per game.

"I just want to get onto the floor," Bennett said. "I was pretty much happy (at power forward). I can work both positions, if anything. I've just got to keep working."

Bennett said he has practiced exclusively at small forward since coach Mike Brown told him he wanted to make the move a little more than a week ago. He's been focusing on his ball-handling skills, his dribble penetration and his corner three – all characteristics of play at the three that differ from what he's accustomed to at the four.
