According to a report, power forward Ben Bentil of the G-League's Mad Ants is set to join the San Antonio Spurs' Summer League team.

The former Providence Friar was selected by the Boston Celtics with the 51st overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft. After being bounced around the NBA, he spent one season with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association in 2016 before returning to the G-League to join the Mad Ants.

Bentil signed a 10-day contract with the Dallas Mavericks before returning to Fort Wayne once his deal with the Mavs ended last season.

Ben is a 6'9", 235 lbs., 22-year old power forward.
