Providence power forward Ben Bentil was selected by the Celtics with the 51st pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.
Bentil averaged 21.1 points per game for Providence last season but has shot selection issues and he doesn’t play a lick of defense. He’s not good enough on offense, however, to command that type of role at the next level and he’ll need to shore up all the other aspects of his game. The Celtics are hoping for lightning in a bottle here to shore up their frontcourt. He has his work cut out for him to make the team.
