Of course with Millsap you always knew he was going to bring the effort. Maybe a change of scenery will be good for Bennett. One thing's for sure though, if he fails in Toronto, he's done. And more often than not "second chance" players fail the second time too. But not always.
You answered it yourself. Millsap was all about the hard work 1st which made him valuable to Jerry Sloan. Then he added the jumpshot, the 3pt line, but never lost the hustle and rebounding.
Bennett otoh was never about hustle. He was drafted because if his skillset and explosiveness. Both he hasn't shown in the professional leagues so far. Not sure he can just add hustle to his game, as most are just born with that motor
