Indiana Pacers fine-tune roster by adding Ben Bentil


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The INDIANA Pacers have signed 6-foot-9 rookie
forward Ben Bentil.

Bentil was one of Boston’s second-round draft picks in June but was
cut before the start of the season. The former Providence star is
not expected to get much playing time and could be assigned to the
Fort Wayne Mad Ants, Indiana’s NBA D-League team.

The move comes one day after the Pacers waived forward Jeremy Evans
and guard Julyan Stone.

Terms of Monday’s deal were not announced. Indiana opens its season
Wednesday at home against the Dallas Mavericks.
