Ben Bentil Will Remain In NBA Draft

Ben Bentil, a 6’9″ sophomore power forward out of Providence, will keep his name in the NBA draft, reports Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com. Underclassmen who haven’t hired agents face a deadline of Wednesday to decide whether to remain in the draft or return to school.

“I think it’s the best decision for me and my family,” Bentil said. “I know I’m ready for the next chapter in my life.”

Bentil improved dramatically during his second season with the Friars, averaging 21.7 points and 7.7 rebounds per game. NBA exectives see Bentil going anywhere from 25th to 45th in next month’s draft, according to Goodman. ESPN’s Chad Ford has Bentil 26th on his list of top 100 prospects, while Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress ranks him 45th.
