Celtics Sign 2nd Round Pick Ben Bentil
Bentil got a three-year deal with a partial guarantee in the first year. He’s the 18th player on the roster right now and theyre only allowed 15 spots on the team, so he will be fighting for the last spot with John Holland, James Young, and RJ Hunter. I’m a big Bentil fan. I think he could develop into a filthy player, very similar to Draymond Green without the assault charges. It might be a little crazy, but I think he can outplay all three of those guys to get the last roster spot. Holland has been playing good but he’s a nobody. James Young has been one of the biggest disappointments in Celtics draft picks for me in a while. Remember last summer when everyone was reporting that he put on 20 pounds of pure muscle? Yeah, well that sold me that he was going to be a freak because he could always bury threes and I thought the new muscle would make him great at driving to the rim, but he sucks. So, as far as I’m concerned he can go. RJ Hunter is a little dangerous. He is lights out from three and I personally saw him bury a half court shot last year right before halftime, so I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for him. However, he did ruin my bracket when he was on Georgia State and I think Bentil has more to offer the Celts in the long run so that he needs to be on the roster.
