Indiana Pacers fine-tune roster by adding Ben Bentil

BY foxsports • October 24, 2016

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.
