Atlanta Hawks cut former Oakland University star Keith Benson
Keith Benson’s NBA mental condition is during a moment upon reason after being cut by a Atlanta Hawks upon Friday.
Benson, who was drafted in a second-round by a Hawks, played twenty-four mins in dual preseason games, scoring 3 points, grabbing 4 rebounds as well as blocking 3 shots.
Benson, 23, played 4 years during Oakland University, heading a Golden Grizzlies to a NCAA Tournament a past dual years whilst winning a Summit League Player of a Year both seasons.
As a senior, Benson averaged 17.9 points, 10.1 rebounds as well as 3.1 retard shots.
Oakland late Benson’s No. 34 jersey final month during halftime of a school’s diversion with a University of Tennessee.
Benson has NBA size, measuring 6-foot-11 with a 7-foot-4 wingspan during a NBA Draft Combine, though has struggled to put weight upon his frame, weighing in during only 217 pounds during a same event.
It’s unlikely the Detroit Pistons will cruise adding Benson with a single of their dual empty register spots. Team President of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars has settled his enterprise to supplement an additional large male to a roster, though an fresh player similar to Benson is substantially not what Dumars has in mind.
