UNLV power forward Anthony Bennett will visit with the Cavaliers on Monday, agent Mike Smith confirmed on Thursday. The News Herald was the first to report the visit. Bennett, 6-8, 240, averaged 16 points and eight rebounds in 34 games for the Runnin' Rebels last season. A long, athletic scorer and rebounder with great hands, he is coming off rotator cuff surgery and will not work out for the Cavs. In recent days, he seems to be gaining attention and has emerged as a possible No. 1 pick. He is from the same hometown as Tristan Thompson -- Brampton, Ontario, and, like Thompson, went to high school and college in the U.S. Though the Cavaliers do not publicize their interviews or workouts, Bennett is one of at least three top players to visit Cleveland before the June 27 draft, along with Georgetown's Otto Porter Jr. and Kentucky's Nerlens Noel. Noel, incidentally, selected Andy Miller as his agent on Thursday.
