Bennett expectations

In light of the ESPN article that Conrad mentioned on Twitter (http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/page/5-on-5-130726/nba-the-next-rookie-year) picking Bennett as the rookie who will "have the hardest time living up to expectations", I think it's fair to ask what everyone is expecting from him, both in terms of numbers and his impact on the team.

I could see him getting upwards of 25 minutes a night in a (theoretical) healthy front court and averaging something in the realm of 16/9/1/1 per 36 and playing marginal to passable D, mosly because I think Mike Brown is likely to limit his exposure to guys he can't handle. Which is to say, he'll end up getting his minutes against the Steve Novak's of the league in most situations. As long as he can show range, the ability to kill 4's off the bounce and decent effort on the defensive end, I personally won't be disappointed.

Thoughts?
