The Dallas Mavericks have released Ghana Power Forward Ben Bentil following the expiration of his ten day contract with the NBA side. Bentil signed the contract in February after impressing for NBA Development League side Fort Wayne Mad Ants by averaging 14 points and five rebounds.

Despite making the roster for four games, the former Providence College star featured in just two games playing a combined total of seven minutes and recording two rebounds against Los Angeles Lakers. He went scoreless against Memphis Grizzlies in a previous contest.

By playing four minutes against the Atlanta Hawks, Bentil made history by becoming the first Ghana-born player to play in the NBA.

He is expected to return to former side Fort Wayne in the Development League. Dallas meanwhile has signed former Iowa University Forward Jarrod Uthoff to fill the roster spot. Uthoff has played for Raptors 905 and Fort Wayne in the Development League.

Since getting drafted 51st overall in the 2016 Draft by Boston Celtics, Bentil has found it difficult getting into the NBA and has had a stint at Xinjiang Guanghui Flying Tigers in the Chinese Basketball Association.
