Ben Bentil: Won't stay with Mavs

Bentil will return to the D-League following the expiration of his 10-day contract with the Mavs on Wednesday, Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

A big-time scorer at the college level, Bentil was the 51st overall pick by Boston in the 2016 draft, but the Celtics opted to part ways with the Providence product prior to the start of the season. Since then, he'd split time between a Chinese league team and the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the D-League, compiling averages of 14.5 points and 5.0 rebounds in 13 contests for Fort Wayne. Bentil appeared sparingly in three games for the Mavericks, failing to record a point on 0-of-3 shooting in 10 total minutes of action.
