Watch out NBA, Anthony Bennett got his tonsils removed and is playing better

Maybe the Cavs should rethink the idea of parting with both Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett in a deal for Kevin Love:

No, this is not a joke. From Jessica Camerato's story on Basketball Insiders:

In May, Bennett underwent surgery to remove his tonsils and adenoids to help improve his sleep apnea. As a result, Bennett, who also has asthma, has found it easier to breathe while playing basketball following the operation.

"Since [having] my tonsils out, my adenoids, I have a lot more room to breathe," Bennett said during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. "It was hard, definitely, with my tonsils in. I feel like taking them out was a huge step." 
"I feel like the conditioning was the biggest part," Bennett said. "After I took my tonsils out, I felt a lot better."

The No. 1 overall pick in 2013 averaged just 4.2 points and 3 rebounds in 12.8 minutes per game as a rookie.
