Anthony Bennett signs with Hapoel Jerusalem on big day for Israeli club

Anthony Bennett is heading to Israel.

Hapoel Jerusalem B.C announced the signing of the former No. 1 overall pick on Wednesday, with the Canadian joining an impressive trio of recruits.

Born in Toronto, Bennett is still just 28 years old and joins Thon Maker and Sean Kilpatrick at the club, with all three holding NBA experience.

Outside of his time in the NBA, Bennett has played in Turkey and the G League along with the Candian National Team in stretches.

Maker played just eight games with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2020-21 and has struggled for consistent playing time in the NBA after being drafted with the 10th pick in the 2016 draft.

Kilpatrick last played in the NBA in 2018, and has had stints with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Denver Nuggets, Milwaukee Bucks, Brooklyn Nets, LA Clippers and Chicago Bulls.
